Final Four Bids are Placed for New Jail

It's down to the final four in the bidding for the new Lubbock County Jail.  County Commissioners and Sheriff David Guitterez have narrowed down the list of architectural firms to four.  Two companies presented their models Tuesday and two more will turn in their designs on Wednesday for the $83 million facility.  

Sheriff Guitterez says they're looking for the firm that can provide the most cost efficient design and a firm that can develop a good working relationship with the county, "What we build will be cost efficient.  We will minimize long term operational costs in design.  I can assure you it will be a model facility not only in the state but in the nation." 

On a side note, Governor Rick Perry appointed Sheriff Guiterrez to the Texas Commission on Jail Standards.  The Commission establishes standards for the care and treatment of county prisoners along with the construction, maintenance and operation of county jails.  This appointment must be approved by the senate.
