A new enclosed trailer, donated for the county’s inmate work detail program, will be seen soon on the roads.

Four inmates from the Oldham County Jail are assigned on a daily basis to work with the county road department, under the direction of inmate work supervisor, Troy Woosley.

Inmates assigned to the program are incarcerated for Class D felonies, which means they are in jail for non-violent offenses.

Judge-Executive David Voegele said he initiated the program to help stretch manpower in the road department.

County government purchased the trailer with donations made by resident Milo Bryant and the City of Crestwood.
