Granville Commissioners Approve More Funding For Jail

Posted Updated

GRANVILLE COUNTY, N.C. — 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.
