HUDSON — Columbia County officials called a plan to share a jail with Greene County a win-win situation even though a resolution to approve a feasibility study was withdrawn from the Columbia County Board of Supervisors’ meeting agenda due to inaction on the other side of the river.
A resolution to approve a $60,000 feasibility study — split between Columbia and Greene counties — for a possible Twin County jail was pulled from the agenda Wednesday after a committee of the Greene County Legislature failed to move its resolution to the full Legislature.
Greene County has been discussing the possibility of sharing a jail with Columbia County for several months as a possible replacement to Greene’s outdated jail, but the plan came to a screeching halt Monday when the Legislature’s Public Safety Committee rejected a feasibility study.
Greene County’s failure to move forward resulted in Columbia County pulling its resolution from consideration.
