million for a 16,000-square-foot expansion at $135 per square foot. That would cost the county between $24,000 to $25,000 per inmate.
Fletcher's plan called for a linear corridor in which two to six 24-capacity dorm rooms would be built along the corridor. This would require officers to walk along the corridor to watch inmates.
The plan also called for expansion
of the 48-bed work release weekend dormitory facility; converted single cells to 16 separation cells; and expanded the medical area, dispatch area, kitchen, administration area, jail uniform area and evidence storage room.
A new laundry and exercise room would be added. Expansion of the 24-capacity dorms would be added in increments of 96, 144 and 192 beds. “Our concept is to add the most beds possible for the least amount of
dollars," Fletcher said.
The price tag for a 96-bed addition would be $3.1 million, 144 beds, $3.8 million; 192 beds, $4.6 million.
Since the linear design is already used in the current jail, it should stay the same, Fletcher said.
"It doesn't make sense to have two management approaches in the same jail," Fletcher said. "The guard has to learn and operate two different ways."
Commissioner Jack Dawson favored BSA's plan since it would
Cost the county only $15,000 per inmate compared to Gorideck's plan.
Dawson said BSA's plan would allow the jail to operate without any major hitches.
"The existing structure and operations will not be interrupted by the expansion," Dawson said.
Commissioner Danny Sc heel said BSA's plan would require the county to hire less officers.
“The modular expansion would require two employees," Scheel said.
"One at the control site and the other at the hall. You would have two at the control site then have one per 48 prisoners. So that would require four employees whereas the linear expansion system we would Trave a guy at the control panel and only be required to have one guy at the hall."
Commissioners will choose an architect at their Thursday meeting at 8:15 a.m. at the county courthouse annex in the Commissioners Courtroom annex.
