RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - The status of Richmond's City Jail was a hot topic of discussion at Monday night's City Council meeting.
Members asked Mayor Dwight Jones, "Why does the City need a new jail right now?"
The mayor made it clear that a new lock-up is long over-due.
He said, "It is clear now that delay will only serve to cost taxpayers additional money and leave existing conditions in place that have for too long gone unaddressed."
