Default New Law Enforcement Facility

I happened to drive down Hwy 17 into Waynesville the other day and noticed most of the old middle school has already been demolished. I assume the new facility will be built at this location and I look forward to seeing it happen soon. My only hope is that they put in enough cells to cover the need. I know the plan called for modular cells that can be added too rather quickly and easily. So, with that in mind, I hope it is in fact that easy just in case they don't make this new jail portion large enough for the County's needs.

If you build it, they will come. No mater how many cells are built I doubt it will be larger enough. Can always House others from outside the county.

About 220 occupant capacity would be fine.

Federal prisoners are what they need to house at the jail.
The feds pay more per day for motel space than counties can afford to pay.

In any event, I look forward to seeing the place go up and much needed improvements made to the LEO's pay and equipment needs. I have seen many improvements since BBW time in office. Prior to that time the County Commissioner's (not you Rudy) had been the biggest hindrance to improvements in this area. Since some of those folks have been replaced we have seen a complete turn-around, which is a good thing.
