Changes Coming to Woodbury County Juvenile Detention Building

posted under GGA News

SIOUX CITY — There are modernization needs in the Woodbury County Juvenile Detention Center, and plans are moving forward to get that work done in upcoming months.

The Woodbury County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday agreed repairs are needed at the detention center, which is located on the fourth floor of the county-owned Trosper Hoyt Building, at 822 Douglas St.

A look into facility needs began in January 2017. While a total replacement of security doors was dropped last summer from the proposal as too costly, the supervisors on Tuesday approved plans for an upgrading of the kitchen in a facility that may often hold a dozen or so juvenile inmates.

The supervisors approved hiring Goldberg Group Architects to design plans for the project and to seek bids for renovation of the kitchen and laundry areas of the detention center. Goldberg will be paid $11,300 for that prep work.
