Despite San Joaquin County suffering from the recession like everyone else, the Board of Supervisors agreed on Tuesday to spend more than $11 million for an architect and construction manager for a project that would nearly double the county jail's capacity.

The board authorized separate expenditures of $7.4 million for architectural services and $3.8 million for construction management. The money will not come from the current year's budget, County Administrator Manuel Lopez said. The funds will come from $25 million the Board of Supervisors authorized for the project two years ago.
