Warren Co. passes new jail bond issue

Warren County will build a new courthouse and jail. 69 percent of county voters, Tuesday, approved the nearly $30 million project to be built in Indianola. The new building will be 80,000 square feet--50,000 square feet larger than county's current courthouse and jail. Voters rejected a similar proposal two years ago. Since then, the county jail and district court services have moved out the county's current courthouse.  According to unofficial election results, 5,300 voters approved the measure.
