Kewaunee County Sheriff Matt Joski is well aware of the challenges ahead not just for a proposed public safety building, but for the area as a whole. The jail was a large part of the discussion at the Kewaunee County Executive Committee meeting held earlier this month. With the county’s finances taking a hit due to the pandemic, the $30 million-plus price tag may be more than what it can be afforded at this time. Joski says he would like to see the ad hoc public safety building committee reconvene and allow the community even more time to give their thoughts on the project.
The ad hoc committee meeting was formed over a year ago to devise a plan to replace the county’s current jail facility that was built in the 1960s.
