Grinder is down at county jail

LaGrange County Sheriff Terry Martin told commissioners Monday morning that the sewage grinder at the jail is out of service. He noted that commissary privileges have been taken away from prisoners for at least 30 days as a result of inappropriate materials being deposited in the toilets and flushed down the drain.

Parts from the current grinder come from Japan and can take up to six months to arrive.

A possible replacement grinder, made in the USA, will be demonstrated at the jail this week.
