SD County Has Trouble Finding Anyone To Fix JailPublished: October 17, 2012, 1:47 PM
The Davison County Commission is having trouble finding a contractor to fix the showers in the county jail.
Officials say no one has submitted a bid despite repeated requests by the county.
County Commission Chairman John Claggett says all contractors are busy. But he says the jail repair would be a good winter project for a contractor, and the work needs to be done.
The commission has directed county staff to start calling contractors to find someone who can do the job. The jail's shower walls have been damaged by moisture.
The commission on Tuesday also voted to spend $5,200 to repair two cell doors that do not lock electronically and fix some other problems in the 72-bed jail.
