Henry County awards jail roof repairs

Commissioners on Tuesday night approved two contracts for roof replacement at the Henry County Jail and Henry County Jail Annex. The need for repairs has been discussed since at least August 2017.

The items were moved from the regular agenda to the consent agenda at the start of the meeting. The contracts were approved without discussion.
