Meeting to address jail feasibility study

From Local Sources

JASPER — The Dubois County Commissioners will meet Thursday about the jail feasibility study.

The meeting will be at 11 a.m. in the conference room on the first floor of the Dubois County Courthouse Annex, 602 Main St., Jasper. At that time, the commissioners will meet with RQAW Corporation of Fishers to discuss the scope of the study.

A state law that went into effect this year requires a feasibility study be done before any new construction or remodeling can be done to a facility. The study must consider the needs of a facility, including size, location, staff and alternatives to incarceration. The county plans to add other topics to the study, such as community corrections needs and options for therapy programs.
