Page drops out of regional jail project

Today In History

March 12, 1987 — The Page County Board of Supervisors all but dropped out of the regional jail project Monday afternoon.

The supervisors gave no official word on whether they would help build a prison to relieve crowded conditions in the Winchester and Clarke and Frederick county jails.

However, the supervisors gave a strong indication of their sentiments.

County officials have said they are skeptical of the project because Page’s jail is only 17 years old and meets state standards.
