Building Permits In For Minnehaha County Jail Expansion

Your Money Matters
KELO Minnehaha County Jail

The first building permits are coming in for the Minnehaha County Jail expansion. 

The permits list two separate projects–one for a jail addition to the east of the existing building and the other on top of the current facility. 

Together, they’re valued at almost $40.7 million. 

Overcrowding has become an growing problem at the jail with sometimes more inmates than space. 

Construction is set to be done in the summer of 2020.
