Allegan jail cost overrun fund increased

Lead in text: 
The extra money will come from a surplus in one of the county's insurance funds. The project to convert a former factory in Allegan into a new jail and sheriff's office got underway in early 2012.
ALLEGAN, MI -- The Allegan County Board of Commissioners has formally decided to cover the cost overruns at the jail and sheriff's office now under construction. Commissioners on Thursday decided to set the contingency budget for the project at 5 percent of total cost, bringing that budget up to $780,000.
