The summer heat is in full swing and inmates at the Iberia Parish jail are certainly feeling it because the air conditioner at the jail is only running at one third of its capacity.
Councilman Lloyd Brown says they've been having problems with the system for years, but especially within the last 8 to 9 months, things have risen to near unbearable levels.
He says they are working to replace the old a/c unit but units but the process is not going to happen quickly. Brown says the new system should be ready to go come early next year.
In the meantime, there are fans placed throughout the jail and they are doing what they can to repair the old system to bring down the temperature.
