GAINES COUNTY - An update on the Gaines County Jail.

Last month, the commissioners court voted to pay for a new jail by taking out loans but some people weren't happy with how it was going to be paid for.

Those voters drew up a petition and as of last week, they were able to get all of the signatures they needed to put it on the ballot.

All that needs to be done now is for the County to make sure those names and addresses are real before it goes to a vote.
