RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones will meet with City Council today about plans for the jail.

They're trying to decide on improvements to the current facility or to construct a new jail.

The jail has no air conditioning, and the sheriff says at times temperatures have reached as high as 120 degrees.

The jail just added 25 industrial sized-fan to help keep the facility as cool as possible.
