VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - Vigo County leaders say they hope to have an official location for the new Vigo County Jail on Wednesday.

The defendants in the lawsuit over the Vigo County Jail gave an update to a federal judge on Tuesday.

The Vigo County Council will consider the chosen location at its next regular meeting on May 14th.

There are three potential sites for the new jail.

They are the old golf course behind the Honey Creek Mall, the former Thompson Honda dealership, and State Road 63 and Springhill.
