BOND COUNTY CROP SURVEY

The Bond County Farm Bureau Annual County Crop Survey is Monday, August 13.  Ron Marshall said they intend to have a crop survey, despite the fact that they know most of the crops are damaged in the county.  Ron added the soybeans still have a chance.  The rain last week definitely helped them and in the next 25 days, weather forecasts are calling for several days of rain each week.  If that happens, it will definitely help the soybean crop.  They will be meeting at 8:30 a.m. at the Bond County Farm Bureau for the survey.  Anyone interested in attending is welcome.  For more information about the survey, call the Bond County Farm Bureau Office at 664-3100.

COUNTY BOARD DISCUSSES COUNTY JAIL AND OVER CROWDING

The State Department of Corrections issued its annual inspection report of the county jail.  The IDOC inspects all county jails annually and issues recommendations.  At Wednesday night’s Bond County Board meeting, the board discussed the over-crowding at the Bond County Jail.  The increase in local criminals serving jail time means fewer, if any, FCI prisoners may be kept at the local jail.  Not holding FCI inmates means less income for the jail and holding more local inmates means more expense.  The IDOC also recommended keeping two jailers on staff at the jail at all times, another additional expense.
