Big Horn County Commission Chairman Chad Fenner has been floating an informal proposal to have the county buy the long-vacant detention facility in Hardin for $7 million.
After nearly five years of failed attempts to fill a 464-bed jail, board members of Hardin's Two Rivers Authority unanimously approved a resolution Tuesday evening to transfer the facility's title to the bondholders who financed the project.
Hardin officials said Friday they are considering relinquishing control of a $27 million jail that was built with the promise of spurring economic development but instead became a source of frustration and embarrassment for the southeastern Montana city.
