Jail Project Set to Begin

Eau Claire County is ready to move forward with its jail renovation project.

The county approved three million-dollars for the jail project earlier this year, now the county is ready to get started. County Board Chair Nancy Coffey says the plan is to remove two of the jail’s three group cells, and replace them with 12 individual cells. The work is ready, but Coffey says the county needs to figure out which account it will use to pay for the work. Originally the plan was to borrow the money, but Eau Claire County has some leftover coronavirus stimulus cash, and Coffey is considering using that.
