Gordon Lea read a statement to Stevens County Commissioners Tuesday at the county courthouse. About 50 opponents of the county's plan to include a jail in a building project gathered to ask the commissioners to postpone plans until the public had a better idea how economic problems would affect their financial situation and that of the county. A motion to postpone the project was defeated by a 3-2 vote.
