Greene County Administrator Shaun Groden explained, "We had a five percent contingency. We only used 1.9 percent which is a credit to the construction manager.” The Greene County Legislature used $8.1 million from their restricted fund balance and will be paying off a $39 million for the next 30 years to replace the Catskill jail. Groden said, “This was the biggest financial decision this legislature will make in 100 years.” Read more about this story at Porcupine Soup.
