Livingston County Jail Repairs

Inmates in the Livingston County Jail might be in hot water... but they won't find it in jail.

The Sheriff's Office shut off the hot water after noticing the water heater was no longer venting properly and had potential to create future problems, requiring the hot water system to need total replacement. Preliminary estimate for replacements and repair range around $12,000. During the summer, the office spends near $600 to $700 per month on just gas to run the hot water heater and kitchen stove. Currently the jail is using cold water for showers for the detainees in custody. The Sheriff says water for cooking and cleaning will be temporarily heated in the kitchen.
