Forsyth County News
The location has changed for the second and final public meeting to discuss Forsyth County's proposed new detention center.

The town hall-style session will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Forsyth County administration building in downtown Cumming.

County officials made the move in order to better accommodate the expected large crowd.

County Manager Rhonda O'Connor and jail architects Pieper O'Brien Herr will be on hand to field residents' questions.

On Nov. 4, voters will decide whether they want to pay for a new jail through a $75 million bond referendum.

The current plan calls for the proposed detention center to be built on 33 acres the county owns off Veterans Memorial Boulevard.

The proposed facility could house up to 480 inmates with the ability to expand if needed.
