NORWICH – Chenango County Undersheriff Ernest Cutting said he was “optimistic” that the new jail would be farming in prisoners in July, a month shy of earlier forecasts.
The New York State Department of Corrections recently completed a week-long review of the 129-bed facility and made few recommendations.
“They issues were just recommendations to document certain things. This (the review’s completion) will help us to get prisoners in and begin making some revenue,” he said. Corrections moved to the new complex in February.
