I see Paulding is getting a new jail to replace the 25-year old jail. http://www.mdjonline...eae1bf27fd.html
Now what to do with the old jail? I would compare the cost of demolishing it to the cost of updating it. It could be used in the future to lease out jail space to the US Marshall's Office. They normally rent jail space from county's to house their detainees as they don't have their own. The sheriff of the county I lived in in Michigan would do this and it made created a good deal of revenue from the US Marshals. Jail space was also rented to the state for detainees serving no more than two-year sentences as well. I think it would be worth looking into. The money could be used to pay for the additional staff needed to operate it.
