The consulting firm studying Kewaunee County’s public safety facility needs is scheduled to report on its findings to the County Board on Tuesday evening (June 18).

Venture Architects of Milwaukee was hired to complete the first of a three-part study into the physical and operational needs of the Kewaunee County criminal justice system.

The existing safety building and jail (pictured) was built 50 years ago to house 22 inmates; the average daily population in December was 38 and it averaged more than 40 for much of 2018.

The other phases will be a description of the county’s operational and architectural needs, and a schematic design work for a new or improved public safety building. County Board approval is needed before any of the three phases begins.

The agenda for Tuesday night’s meeting estimates that the report will take about an hour. The board meets starting at 6 p.m. at the county Administration Center, 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee.
