Warren County Waits on Board for Next Jail Decision
INDIANOLA, Iowa-- The Warren County Board of supervisors is scrambling. The county jail closes tomorrow and there is no solution to the problem. The temporary fix comes out of the Warren County Sheriff’s 2019 fiscal budget, so until a solution is found a budget cannot be approved. There were multiple temporary options discussed. House inmates in trailers over night until their initial court appearance. Do nothing and leave it up to police and deputies to find inmate housing, that includes firing five county employees. Board chair Doug Shull supports that plan.
