POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) - According to Butler County Sheriff Mark Dobbs, about $15,000 dollars has been spent on repairs to the Butler County Jail.
Dobbs says that several ceilings that were made with drywall, were upgraded with steel. He says as more money becomes available, more repairs will be made.
Three inmates climbed through a hole and proceeded to fall out the ceiling in the lobby in March.
Dobbs says more meetings with the county commission are planned. They want to see what has been done and what needs to happen next.
