Jail Improvements Too Costly

Posted by wlpo on October 16, 2011

You’ll be happy to know that the La Salle County Board isn’t recklessly spending your tax dollars.

The heating and air conditioning needs fixed in the women’s pod of the La Salle County Jail.  The board though is putting off the work after bids came in six times the amount of what the county had estimated to pay for the repairs.  Public Property Committee Chairman Jim Olson says the women’s pod is either too hot or too cold on most days.

The board is restarting the bid process.  The engineer’s estimate is 40 thousand dollars.
