Sheriff’s Office and COPS to host open house Aug. 2

Jul 19, 2018

Sheriff Rich McNamee announced an open house will be held from 5-8 p.m. in the Henry County Courthouse rotunda on Thursday, August 2. The open house will be hosted by the Henry County Sheriff’s Office and Citizens Orgnaized for Public Safety (COPS).

This open house will be an opportunity for Henry County residents to review the plans for the new Henry County Law Center. The groups feel that it is appropriate that the open house be held on the anniversary of the passage of the bond issue to finance the new law center.

Their goal is for citizens to be able to come in and look at the blueprints for the jail and see, firsthand, where the bond funds will be spent.

Midwest Construction Consultants, project managers for the facility, will be available to answer questions.

Changes in the design of the law center, and reasonable cost biddings, have increased the jail capacity from the proposed 44 beds to 96 beds. The current facility has 8 beds.

The new Henry County Law Center is projected to be completed in Summer 2019.
