Delaware County Hires Firm For Jail Funding

Delaware County officials have hired an Indianapolis firm to help them prepare funding to possibly build a new county jail.

The Delaware County Commissioners have hired the firm to help them figure out how much is needed, how the project can be financed and how they can put it all together.

The Delaware County Jail has become overcrowded in recent years and outdated as well, leading local elected officials to begin planning to build a new one.
