“We either pay now, or we pay later,” said Clay County District 3 Supervisor R.B Davis.
Davis’ sentiment was in response to Clay County Sheriff Eddie Scott’s request for a new detention center upon consideration of the nearly 60 years of depreciation dished to the current facility.
Sparked by this revelation, Scott said it wasn’t feasible to continue “sinking money” into a facility which required more upkeep and expenditures than it was worth.
“It’s served it’s purpose over the years,” said Scott. “(We have) a prison rights attorney that comes in once a year and does his inspection. ... He said, ‘Over the years it’s been a good facility, but I’ll tell you right now you need to start looking.’”
