The upgrade requests keep coming for the Davison County Jail.
At Tuesday's regular meeting of the Davison County Commission, the five-person board will hear a quote for a security system upgrade at the 73-bed facility. The commission will meet at 9 a.m. at the Davison County North Offices at 1420 N. Main St.
Earlier this year, Corrections Administrator Don Radel told the commission a security system upgrade could cost $50,000 for the system upgrade, which lost two of its functions during an August power outage.
The quote will come from Mitchell-based Vantage Point Solutions. When Radel spoke to the commission about the possible upgrade, he said there would be three options available, including a full replacement.
The commission will discuss the following items on the agenda:
• 9 a.m.: Call the meeting to order, conduct the Pledge of Allegiance, hear citizen input, hear board reports and consider approving minutes.
• 9:15 a.m.: Meet with the community health nurse to hear a quarterly report.
• 9:30 a.m.: Discuss the purchase of a plasma cutter with Highway Superintendent Rusty Weinberg and consider signing a bridge grant funding agreement.
• 10 a.m.: Meet with Sheriff Steve Brink regarding personnel. The first portion of the discussion will be held during a closed-door executive session.
• 10:30 a.m.: Hear the Vantage Point Solutions quote for the Davison County Jail security system.
• 10:45 a.m.: Meet with Davison County State's Attorney Jim Miskimins in an executive session for union negotiations.
• 11 a.m.: Hear health insurance committee recommendations.
• 11:15 a.m.: Consider approving bills and timesheets, hear miscellaneous motions brought to the board and consider acknowledging volunteers.
