SALINA, Kan. (AP) Saline County officials have approved a plan to let voters decide the fate of a $46.5 million bond issue to improve the county jail.

Saline County commissioners voted 2-1 Wednesday to put the bond issue on the November ballot. The renovations would also include combining the county jail with court services and the county attorney's office.

The Salina Journal reports the justice complex work would include renovating the jail and increasing capacity to 344 beds; renovating the jail booking and medical offices; and new court, community corrections and county attorney facilities. The proposed three-story building would be constructed at the location of the current jail.

The proposal also calls for a $3 million parking garage about a block away.
