No action on Sheriff’s new west precinct


AUGUSTA, Ga. (WJBF) – Augusta leaders are not ready to move forward with a new Sheriff’s Office Precinct…at least not yet.

The Sheriff’s office has an offer from the owners of the Publix Shopping Center near Augusta National to lease space there for a dollar a year for he next five years to house deputies.

The city would need to spend #100 thousand dollars for furnishings and equipment.

But after talking about the lease in legal session Tuesday afternoon, Commissioners voted to put off a final decision until their next commission meeting in October.
