Congratulations to Miami County, KS!!
“Location, location, location” is a familiar mantra which applies when choosing a detention center site. A jail site must be acceptable to the citizens yet allow for cost effective operations in proximity to the courthouse. A site near an existing courthouse may be more costly than a greenfield site, however, maintaining the jail location on a “courthouse square” often insures the vitality of the town’s business district
Goldberg Group Architects worked closely with Miami County officials to locate their new Detention Center near the current Courthouse allowing it to be connected by an underground tunnel. The project’s exterior matches the County’s historic Courthouse with similar materials, arched windows, stone tiim and entry tower.
The 18.1 million dollar project includes a 96-bed detention center, Sheriff’s department, jail administration, 911 dispatch, emergency operations center (EOC), tunnel, additional courthouse parking and two important Memorials around the new project– one for Fallen Officers, the other for 9-11-01 First Responders. Congratulations to Miami County on the November 3, 2017 dedication of this facility.
