Geneva County Jail

It's one of the oldest operating jails in the state of Alabama and Monday Montgomery architects met with Geneva County officials to discuss the possibility of replacing the 41-year-old problem-plagued facility.

The PH & J Architectural Firm has built nearly two dozen jails across Northwest Florida and Alabama over recent years.

Company representatives met with Sheriff Greg Ward and several elected officials.

With space for only 42 prisoners, it seems all agree that the Geneva County Jail is "outdated".

Sheriff Ward says something needs to be done before a federal judge orders a new jail be built.

The county commissioners say funding a multi-million dollar facility is the problem.

They discussed a temporary, half-cent sales tax as one option.

No final decisions were made.
