20 Years Ago

From The Files of August 2, 1990
’90 Fulton County Commissioners voted Tuesday unanimously to reject the Palmer Group’s proposal to construct a 500-bed minimum security

detention facility here “since the county commissioners have not received assurances from the Department of Corrections that they will lease jail space from the county.” The commissioners had set up a meeting hoping to get answers or guarantees from the state concerning providing minimum security state prisoners to help fill the facility, prisoners’ classification status information and liability for possible fringe costs. What the commissioners got was a presentation detailing the state’s new prison construction and addition plans under the new state budget and a refusal to commit to any aspects of the Palmer proposal at this time.
