Herkimer County officials could have a better idea later this week when the new county jail at the former P&C site on Route 28 will be ready to start housing inmates, said Herkimer County Legislature Chairman Vincent J. Bono.
The contractors have until Wednesday to finish the nearly $40 million project.
“They have to mop up a few loose ends,” he said Friday.
He did not know if they would need any additional time. After the work is completed and a certificate of occupancy is issued, the state Commission of Corrections will inspect the facility.
