The Grant County Jail will soon be getting a facelift that officials say is much needed.

At Monday’s commissioners’ meeting, Sheriff Reggie Nevels briefed the board on plans to repaint the entire inside of the jail facility. Nevels said the jail has only been fully repainted once – using inmate labor, not a professional company – since its 1990 addition, with small cosmetic touch ups and projects since then using the inmate work crew.
