GAINES COUNTY - Gaines County takes the next step in building a new jail.

The County bought land to put it on.

Officials say they just don't have enough room in the old one.

Right now, they're sending some of their prisoners to other counties to be housed which is costing them major money.

Commisioners plan to put a jail bond on the November ballot.
