Bouldin, Linda Jones, Kenny Roberts and Scott Rubley met Tuesday to review proposals submitted after the county went out for bids on architectural services. Members looked for those with a strong background in jail construction and/or renovation, as well as the company’s proximity to Warren County.Upland has worked with Taft Youth Development Center in Pikeville, Campbell County Justice Center in Jacksboro, Cumberland County Justice Center in Crossville, Fentress County Justice Center and is currently over Van Buren County Administrative Building construction that will include a jail.
