Fayette County Commissioners
Last month, Fayette County commissioners elected to build a new $30 million prison. It’s a decision residents are still angry about.
It was contentious in the Fayette County Commissioners’ conference room Wednesday.
The aging Fayette County Prison’s days are numbered. Commissioners voted 2-1 Tuesday to replace the 124-year-old facility with a new state-of-art facility at a cost of $31 million.
The Fayette County Prison is in need of an upgrade. It’s the second oldest operating facility in the state of Pennsylvania.
