A Sullivan County building is getting a much need make over.
After 20 years, the fire house in Hymera is getting a fresh coat of paint; thanks to Sullivan County inmates.
The Sullivan County Sheriff’s Department has provided low risk offenders as man power for the community service project.
Its a way for the inmates to give back to the community, while they near the end of their sentencing.
The program is aimed at helping offenders transition back into daily life after jail.
“We are here to break the cycle. If we can get the guys on the right track and get them thinking about working and being productive members also while giving back to the community.”–Sullivan County Sheriff Clark Cottom
The project is expected to finish up on Friday, October 20th.
Sullivan County assisted by loaning its ladder truck for extra height; the paint however was funded by the town of Hymera.
