The Huron County commissioners have a major decision to make involving the jail.
The jail chiller, which is the key component to the cooling system, is composed of four compressors. One of those compressors has failed and a second is struggling, officials said.
The chiller, which has had compressors replaced before, is 17 years old.
The commissioners can either replace the failing compressors at an undetermined cost or purchase a new chiller for $150,000 to $180,000.
