Rowan Jail Construction Issue

Lakeview Heights Mayor David Bolt and other members of his community plan to attend tomorrow’s meeting of the Rowan County Fiscal Court to voice their opposition to the proposed construction of a 300-bed jail just outside the city. Bolt says if the regional lockup is being constructed as a way to generate revenue for the county, the move could backfire…

Bolt says the jail should not be built in an area that’s largely residential. One of the proposed sites for the detention center is on more than 30 acres near US 60 and Deer Run Lane.
