The city of Lake Forest has agreed to a plan for expansion of the James A. Musick jail, which is in an area between Lake Forest and Irvine, according to a report in the Orange County Register.
The expansion would make room to house 1,850 more inmates at the minimum-security facility.
"This will really bring the Musick discussion to a close," the paper quotes Councilman Peter Herzog as saying.
The City Council took the unanimous action Tuesday on the agreement between the city, the county and the Sheriff's Department, but the county supervisors must approve the deal, which would allow some medium-security inmates in the jail. Read the full Register story here.
