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.
