Posted June 18, 2003 10:35 a.m. EDT

— Granville County commissioners approved an extra budget request just to feed all of the inmates in the county jail.

The jail will also get an extra $20,000 to help with medical care.

Officials say the jail has faced a problem with overcrowding to a backlog in the court system.

A jail addition is expected to begin next month to ease the overcrowding.
