Early voting on jail bond starts Monday

The fate of Coryell County’s proposed 250-bed detention facility is in the hands of the voters beginning on Monday as early voting starts on a Special Bond Election.

Early voting opens Monday and runs through April 27. Election Day for the bond is Saturday, May 1.

If passed, the single-item bond election would give county commissioners the green light to begin construction on a new jail facility off of FM 929.

If the bond fails, the issue of a new jail will be tabled for a minimum of three years.
