Grundy Jail Closed
Monday July 21, 2014

Approximately 73 inmates at the Grundy County Jail were moved last week to seven different facilities throughout the state after the Fire Marshal reported major electrical problems at the jail.
A recent inspection of the Grundy County Jail by the Fire Marshal determined that exposed wiring and natural gas lines put the inmates at risk. Several renovations were immediately implemented while others are projected to take up to two weeks, which is the deadline set by the Fire Marshal for completion of all improvements.
It will cost Grundy County $35 to $85 per day, per inmate to house prisoners at other jails.
