Saline County Jail: Walls are going up!
Thank you for signing up to stay informed about the Saline County Jail Project. If you no longer wish to receive updates on the Jail Project, please see the unsubscribe information at the bottom of this email.
In June, we shared that precast cells had been manufactured, trucked to Salina, and set in place on foundations in the housing areas. We also mentioned that concrete block walls would be going up along with structural steel. Recently, crews have begun to set precast concrete walls that will form the exterior of the office spaces and public lobby area. This work will be continuing for several weeks.
Underground, water and sewer tie-ins have been made and additional sanitary sewer and storm water conveyances are being installed.

Planning is also underway for the transition from the current jail to the new facility. Although the move is still 13+ months away, a transition team has been assembled to begin thinking about how the layout of the new building as well as its size and advanced level of technology will impact daily procedures.

Staff continues making progress updates to the County Commission each month. The next update is scheduled for Tuesday, August 9.

Stay tuned for more information!
