New Braunfels Herald Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 26, 1983, New Braunfels, Texas More for the money By JACQUELINE SMITH Staff writer Architect says county can build larger jail than planned The architect working on plans for the new county jail thinks he can build a slightly bigger structure for about the same price outlined in the bond package Commissioners Court, which has now seen preliminary drawings of the proposed one-story structure, had planned to build a 100-inmate jail w ith the $3.9 million bond package approved by voters on May 7. Wednesday however, the court learned from Houston architect Christopher DiStephano that a 110-capacity jail could be built for approximately the same price Responding to questioning from Commissioner J.L. “Jumbo” Evans, DiStephano said he did not anticipate that the 110-bed jail would require more personnel to operate than the 100-capacity jail. Evans noted the court's concern with the state jail standard w hich requires one jailer per 45 prisoners. “Our concern is the staffing for the operation i of the jail),” said Evans. Because prisoners must be segregated according to classification of crime and gender (as well as age in the case of juveniles), the architect said ”it’s almost impossible to totally fill a jail." A 110-capacity jail “will actually give you (a jail population I of closer to 90," he added. According to the DiStephano’s preliminary plans, the detention facility will consist of 56 single-cells with the remaining beds included in multi-occupancy cells, winch hold up to eight prisoners, and dormitory cells, which house up to a dozen.
