Richmond must revise jail site plans

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Richmond city council just passed a plan for a city jail last month, but Mayor Dwight Jones will need to submit a new plan for the state.

Administration officials for Mayor Jones tell the paper that the city must tweak its plan so it meets the criteria of the State Department of Corrections.

The mayor's staff says the state review of the revised plan should not prevent work from starting this December.
