      Adams County jail could temporarily house federal prisoners

      Adams County is considering housing federal inmates in an effort to boost revenue at the Adams County Jail.

      Sheriff Brent Fischer brought up the idea this month to Adams County Board members. Fischer said this is an option the county should at least explore.

      He said this would in turn prevent firing staff to save money.

      Fischer said he understands there are things that may stand in the way of this option, including space issues.
