Kewaunee County Jail project meets the board and public on Tuesday

You will be able to join the Kewaunee County Board on Tuesday to hear more about the proposed Kewaunee County Jail project that has been years in the making. At last month’s board meeting, Kewaunee County Administrator Scott Feldt and Sheriff Matt Joski gave the board a sneak peek at what will be proposed. The project's current phase has focused on the floor plans and the specifics of the building, making sure it was at its absolute lowest costs while not forfeiting operational effectiveness. The hope is they will be able to construct the facility for approximately $25 million. If built, Kewaunee County residents would see their property tax bill rise by roughly $40 on a $200,000 home in exchange for replacing the state’s oldest and smallest county jail. Feldt says it is important for supervisors and residents to see the work the county is doing to ensure the project is operationally and financially sound with taxpayers in mind.

Representatives from Venture Architects and Samuels Group will be in attendance to present floor plans and cost estimates. County administrative staff will also give information regarding budgetary, debt, and tax implications of the project. You are invited to participate in Tuesday’s Kewaunee County Board meeting at 6 p.m. by attending in person at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds Exposition Hall or by clicking this link.
