County seeks state funds for jail project
Beltrami County will seek $1.99 million in state funds for its jail efficiency project, but commissioners split over needing local funds to match.

But proponents said the jail also faces severe deficiencies that if not corrected, the state could mandate construction that could include building a new jail.
