Some big stuff has been happening out at the site of the new Saline County Jail & Sheriff's Facility. By which we mean big machinery moving around big piles of dirt and rocks. This equipment has been leveling the building pad upon which the new building will begin to arise during 2022. While a building pad is not the most exciting part of the construction process, it is critical to the overall project.
Staff has begun briefing the County Commission monthly regarding progress on the new jail. These briefings are typically scheduled on the second Tuesday of each month, at the regular Commission meeting which occurs at 9 a.m. You can view the meeting live on Channel 20 if you're a Cox Cable subscriber, or either live or at your leisure by going to the County's YouTube channel. The next briefing will occur next Tuesday, January 11.
