The Kewaunee County Board approved a $25.6 construction of a new jail Tuesday night. The vote was 19-1 to approve, with District 12 representative Milt Swagel casting the lone dissenting vote. The County Board also approved a general obligation bond of $21 million to pay for the jail’s construction by the same vote margin of 19-1. The first vote required a simple majority, while the financing vote needed 15 of the 20 supervisors to say yes. The new jail will house 52 beds, while the current jail, which is one of the oldest in the state, can hold a maximum of 22 inmates.
