GREENFIELD — County officials finally agreed to a pricey upgrade to locks at the Hancock County Jail Tuesday, but some are still crying foul on how the bidding process was handled and whether a less intrusive, cheaper solution would have been better.
Hancock County Commissioners voted 2-1 to hire Crowder Detention Inc. at $345,000 to install new locks at the jail. While Commissioners Derek Towle and Tom Stevens said new technology will ease safety concerns, Commissioner Brad Armstrong voted against the measure, saying the county could save money by looking into other options.
