Sherriff outlines plan to build $23M detention center
BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. (AP) — Authorities in Bellows Falls have outlined a plan to build a $23 million detention center.
The Rutland Herald reports Windham County Sheriff Keith Clark outlined the plans Tuesday night in the Rockingham Town Hall.
Clark says the plan includes a renovation of the dilapidated Chem-Co mill building, located near the Connecticut River.
The facility would include a new office for the Sheriff's Department, as well as a regional dispatch center and other prisoner facilities.
Clark says the facility would be privately owned by a corporation. The Sheriff's Department would lease it for seven years, and then have the option to buy the facility.
