Commissioners give old county jail 90 more days
By Amanda Bridgman
 
Wabash County Commissioners on Monday granted Indiana Landmarks 90 days to find a buyer for the old Wabash County Jail.
 
Paul Hayden, community preservation specialist for Indiana Landmarks, asked the commissioners to give his office 90 days to advertise requests for proposals nationwide for the old county jail and then for another 60 days after the 90 days are up. 
 
Commissioner Scott Givens said he thought a representative from Indiana Landmarks already was advertising nationwide for requests for proposals because the building is an endangerment to the public.

Belushi told The Paper of Wabash County she partnered with Aykroyd to produce the concert “to show that these characters live outside of the two actors who first performed it.”
