PRESIDIO COUNTY - Presidio County officials, trying desperately to get the doors of the County jail, open again.
Judge Jerry Agan tells NewsWest Nine, most of the needed repairs have been completed and the facility needs to be inspected.
On Monday, County Commissioners discussed, asking for an increase to the $41.00 per-diem they get from the U.S. Marshals for housing prisoners.
At that rate, with a full jail, the county operated at a $300,000 per year loss.
