Unresolved kitchen problems at Curry County Detention Center

Posted: Updated:

CLOVIS, N.M.-From escaped inmates to a recent flooding incident, the Curry County Detention Center has a new problem to address concerning their kitchen. 

State inspectors recently found numerous violations ranging from safety to sanitation problems such as mold.

The jail could eventually be shut down if the problems aren't corrected soon.

Jail Administrator Gerry Billy is working to find a solution to the problem but so far, no agreement has been reached between the county and jail.

He says the kitchen needs to be refurbished and said it would have to shut down the jail for at least 10 days.

This means an outside food provider would have to feed inmates.

That expense is estimated to cost $19,000.

Meanwhile, the kitchen renovations will cost roughly $17,000.
