Forums to be conducted on jail bond issue

Curry County jail Administrator Gerry Billy will conduct four public forums on a $9.3 million bond issue referendum scheduled for April 3.

The public forums are:

• 5:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Clovis Carver Public Library’s north annex.

• 11:30 a.m. March 15 at the Melrose Senior Center, 427 Main St., Melrose;

• 6 p.m. March 15 at Texico Senior Center, 211 Griffin St., Texico;

• 11:30 a.m. March 28 at Grady Senior Center, 104 W. Main St., Grady.

The sessions include time for those attending to ask questions of Billy and other county officials about the ballot question, according to a press release from County Manager Lance Pyle.

If approved by voters, the bond issue would be used to pay for an expansion and renovation of the jail.
