PRESIDIO COUNTY - The fate of Presidio County jail is up in the air at least until next week.

County commissioners met on Monday night to try to figure out what to do since the company running the jail pulled out of its contract.

County officials tell NewsWest 9, they decided to hold off any decisions until the commissioner's regular meeting next week.

They're in talks with Senator Pete Gallegos to try to come up with a solution.

The Sheriff says he's willing to do whatever it takes to keep it open.
