      Lee County Jail complete & under budget

      The recently completed Lee County Jail project came in about $58,000 under budget.

      The two-phase project began back in 2008.

      A new jail was built first and the rennovating the old building was the second phase.

      The project was originally thought to cost just under $6 million, but a consulting firm was able to keep costs down, that's according to Lee County Board of Supervisors member Ernie Schiller.

      KHQA's Jim Whitfield will have more on this story tonight at 5:00, 6:00 and 10:00.
