Clay County Jail Proposal At A Standstill

Clay County Jail Proposal At A Standstill

The proposed new Clay County Jail and Law Enforcement facility is currently at a standstill.

The Clay County Commission recently rescinded its resolution for a 39-million-dollar bond issue after hearing from individuals that it was destined to fail with voters in the June election.

Jail and Law Enforcement Center Facility Committee Chairman Steve Weller says the proposal needs a lot more public education…

Of the $39 million dollars needed for the facility, the city of Vermillion’s share would be $9 million in the current proposal.
