Cumberland County Jail contract continues

2020-05-28 - Columbia - Photo by Linda Waggener,
Before the Coronavirus shut down, issues were brought up in the Courthouse Annex meeting for discussion that would have to be finished in later meetings on the Internet. Cumberland County Judge Executive John Phelps spoke at the first March, 2020 Fiscal Court meeting during the discussion about the jail agreement, using the Adair County Regional Jail for Cumberland County prisoners.

The vote was finalized at the first May meeting of Adair Fiscal Court and it was in favor of continuing the contract. In the background in this photo is Adair Magistrate Chris Reeder.
