With passage of a sales tax increase, a new jail will be built in Jefferson County. But County Judge Jack Jones says it will probably be October before the higher tax is collected. By a narrow margin, voters approved a half-cent sales tax Tuesday to build the jail. A similar proposal failed by 108 votes in May. Half of the tax increase will be temporary, ceasing after more than ten million dollars in bonds are paid off. The other half will stick around, funding jail maintenance and daily operation. The Jefferson County Election Commission is scheduled to certify election results tomorrow. Then, the state Department of Finance and Administration is notified and will direct county businesses to start collecting the additional tax.
