After telling you about the immediate pay raises for Taylor County jailers last week, the jail has seen an increase in applicants.

More than twenty people applied within two days after we reported it here on Big Country Homepage.

The Taylor County Jail is currently understaffed by seventeen people which is a public safety concern.

In an effort to keep the current staff, all employees making under $30,000 received a raise to equal that amount.
