Temporary domes behind old Geneva County Jail expected to come down


GENEVA COUNTY, Ala. (WDHN) — In the early 2,000’s, domes were placed behind the old Geneva County Jail in order to house an overflow of inmates.

Although it was meant to be temporary, Probate Judge Toby Seay said the domes remain an eyesore behind the courthouse. Tuesday the commission agreed to contract with a Hartford company to remove the structures.

“We will remove those domes, we will resurface the parking lot,” Seay said. “We will build a sally port for prisoners to be brought up from the old jail to the circuit courtroom. We will also add security fencing around the area.”

The domes are expected to be removed in coming weeks, providing needed space for courthouse parking.
