Inmates help build new social services facility

MARION, April 13 - Inmates from the Community Work Program at Marion Correctional Institution's minimum security unit recently helped complete construction on a new wing at the McDowell County Department of Social Services.

The new wing is a 3,000 square foot facility with 12 offices, a conference room and storage space. With the help of inmate labor on the project, the county was able to save $80,000-$100,000 in construction costs.
