Tuesday afternoon, the Grant County Board of Supervisors voted to approve a $29.96 million jail and office complex, after arguing after voting down a $28.465 million building project that would have included a new $22 million jail and law enforcement center.

The vote was 6-10, with one absence on the first vote, 15-1 on the second. The threshold for such a votes was 13 votes for approval.

The proposal would have replaced the current jail, which was first constructed in 1957. Under the proposal, the mill rate would have increased taxpayers' bills to the tune of $29 for a $100,000 home.

More information will be in this week's Grant County Herald Independent.
