Fayette County commissioners are considering setting up a series of public hearings to gather input on a proposed new prison before any action is taken.

On Sept. 17 the board will consider authorizing at hearings and setting dates and locations.

During an agenda meeting on Tuesday, Terry Ryan of German Township suggested the county hold the meetings.

All three commissioners said they favor the idea. Commissioner Angela Zimmerlink said the meetings should be scheduled after a needs-assessment study is presented to the prison board on Sept. 25, but before commissioners take any official action on hiring architects or opening a temporary women's annex to alleviate overcrowding.

Commissioners will discuss the idea and consider formal action when they meet at 10 a.m. Sept. 17 at the Public Service Building in Uniontown.
