Geneva County Jail set to put in roof soon

Local News

GENEVA, Ala. (WDHN) — The Geneva County Jail has been under construction since last September.

It’s a $13 million-dollar project that is funded by a one-cent tax that was voted on by the community.

In July, the building was ahead of schedule to being finished.

According to Geneva Sheriff Tony Helms, the jail is almost “dried in,” and the roof construction will start this week.

Bricks are also starting to be put in around the outside.

“They’re working up on the top getting the holes cut through the ceiling for all the air handling and airconditioning and heating, so all that’s coming along real well,” Helms said.

The sheriff said they are looking to get the key for the jail in February.
