YADKINVILLE, N.C. — Officials in a North Carolina county have pledged to build a new jail to replace an unsafe one closed last year, causing a Superior Court judge to cancel a meeting on
its delay.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Judge John Craig canceled the meeting with Yadkin County commissioners set for Friday after they adopted a resolution Monday saying they will
build the jail west of Yadkinville.

County Attorney Jim Graham said Craig told him he was satisfied with the commissioners’ action but would retain jurisdiction.

Craig ordered the commissioners in December 2006 to build a new jail. They approved construction of an $8 million jail in November 2007. But that decision was delayed by lawsuits and disagreement over the jail’s size and location.
