Councilman Proposes Jail for Council Offices

Discussions about an old jail being used to house the school board's district offices are underway in the Low Country. The Beaufort County Ccouncil's Public Service Committee is holding the discussions, but school officials tell WTOC they plan on building new offices in Okatie, where they've already purchased land.

County council member Dick Stewart says he hopes this proposal will persuade the school district to keep their offices in the county seat.
