Construction crews started setting up on Wednesday for the Randall County jail expansion.
Law enforcement leaders hope the one hundred forty-four new beds will make jails more efficient in the area -- but it comes at a cost to randall county taxpayers.
Seven point one million dollars.
The expansion can cost no more than that - according to a decision made last night by county commissioners.
Money for the project was raised by selling bonds but taxpayers will ultimately see an increase.
