Existing jail facility: Bruce Robinson said trustees plan to meet with Senators, Representatives and Board of County Commissioners to become active about options with our current jail facilities.

JFA Attorney David Cummings told Groves he would like to see Change Orders before they are presented to the Board and would like the changes to be in numerical order.



Groves said the PSA, mechanical, electrical and plumbing engineers are working to use grinder pumps in the project opposed to a lift station because grinder pumps are simpler and there would be a reduction in the cost. Plans will be finished Monday, submitted to Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) and then to the county for discussion.


Robinson discussed the lift station, safety restrictions, labor and cost involved, and other options that are available.


Ron Stevens asked about the cost involved with the lift station. Robinson said the cost would be approximately $90,000.

Zieg said the recent rains have not slowed them down that much.
