The Davison County Commission will continue considering its options regarding the local jail's security system.

At last week's regular meeting, the five-person board decided to table a $5,500 plan to review the Davison County Jail's existing security system, which was damaged during a power outage in August. The commission will meet with Larry Thompson, of Vantage Point, to discuss the company's $5,500 proposal to review the system.

The commission will meet at 9 a.m. Thursday instead of its regular Tuesday meeting time so it can canvass the results of the Nov. 8 election. The board will meet at the Davison County North Offices at 1420 N. Main St. in Mitchell.

Since August, the jail has not had full access to all the amenities previously offered by its security system, and Corrections Administrator Don Radel said a full replacement of the system could cost more than $50,000. But, he said, this initial study would help determine the county's options in repairing or replacing the system that helps monitor the inmates at the jail.
