Jail fate to be decided today

Tuesday is election day in Davis County. Voters will go to the polls between noon and 8 p.m.  to vote on a bond referendum to build a new Law Center. The current jail does not meet state jail standards. Structural issues have also factored into state recommendations that  the county do something. The referendum calls for voters to decide whether or not to spend $5.8 million on a new facility or risk spending $9.9 million over the next 20 years to house prisoners in other county jails. Bloomfield Cable News and The Bloomfield Democrat Online will post the results of the election once they are released Tuesday night.
