Monroe County Referendum On Jail

Since 2002, Monroe County has paid about a quarter of the total cost of a new jail and courthouse to house prisoners out of county. The numbers stun Sheriff Pete Quirin.

Voters will take those numbers to the polls tomorrow when they vote on where a new facility will go. The 2 locations are downtown Sparta and a 40 acre site off of Highway 71. The ultimate decision will come down to the county board.
