Change In Plans For Warren County Jail Site

WARREN COUNTY, MS (Ben Caxton) — Facing opposition from the City of Vicksburg and local development officials over sites previously proposed for a new county lockup, the Warren County Board of Supervisors have selected a different site they believe will make everyone happy. The old Pinewoods Hotel property on Highway 80 gathered unanimous support in a Monday vote by the supervisors as the future home of the Warren County Jail. Even though the site is outside city limits approval will be needed by Vicksburg. The next step will be to discuss the proposal with the city and local legislators. If all approve, then purchase and clearing of the 47-acre site can begin. The location will require $200,000 in infrastructure improvements including connection to the city’s sewage treatment system. The county stresses that they will be paying for the new facility, not the City of Vicksburg.
