The Marion-Walthall County Jail is getting an addition.
The project is expected to cost around $3 million. Sheriff Berkley Hall said this addition will make the facility safer for inmates and deputies.
Berkley said 110 beds will be added, and tax payers will not see an increase in their taxes because the county receives money to house state inmates.
Sunday, March 26 marked the 30th anniversary that Southern Miss basketball won the 1987 NIT Tournament.
