City Council delays vote on jail plan changes

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT)-There is a new road block for the mayor's plan to build a new city jail.

Monday night, City Council decided to delay a vote on changes the administration says it needs in order for the plan to get the State Board of Corrections' approval.

According to the Times-Dispatch, that decision came after a lengthy discussion in which council members continued to question aspects of the city's jail plan.

"We are very disappointed that we weren't able to give council all the information they needed. We will make sure we do that between now and the tenth." said Byron Marshall, Chief Administrative Officer.

Council will take up the issue again on October 10, just in time for the state board to consider the $116 million plan on October 19.
