The Rhea County Commission will hold a public hearing about possible new Rhea County Jail sites on Tuesday. The commission will also consider a resolution allowing the Rhea Medical Center Board to negotiate the lease of the old hospital, according to the commissionís agenda for the Tuesday, June 18, meeting.
Property near Eagle Exxon has long been considered as a site for a new justice center, which could alleviate overcrowding at the current Rhea County Jail.
