After thorough debate, the Webster County Commission voted unanimously on Tuesday, July 12th to approve the exterior design of “Phase One” of the new Webster County Justice Center.
Phase One includes a much-needed new Jail, along with a Sheriff’s Office and one Courtroom for criminal proceedings. Eventually, Phase Two envisions more Courtrooms – along with court staff and Prosecutor offices, and other law enforcement related facilities to support them. For the time being, however, the majority of judicial activity will continue to take place in the current Courthouse.
The administrative portion of Phase One wraps around the west side of the new Jail. It resembles the existing Robertson Hardware building in style and dimension – but gains valuable square footage by adding 40 feet in width.
The Jail itself is a formidable two story 120’ x 120’ concrete box. The facility is capable of holding 150 beds; 136 in the main (higher security) set of ‘pods’, with an additional 14 lighter security beds in the basement beneath the administrative wing.
The total budget for the project is $16.4 million. The County will fund a portion with of reserve funds saved over the past several years, and will issue bonds for the remainder. The Commission intends to pay the debt service for the facility with existing revenues. Additional income generated by leasing ‘open beds’ to neighboring counties will be used to accelerate the construction of Phase Two (courts facility) to the earliest possible date.
Sheriff Roye Cole expressed his appreciation for the Commission’s decision, stating “Our goal is to construct a safe and efficient facility; one that fits our community, and of which future generations can be proud.”
The design team is working on construction documents. Bids will be sent out in the Fall – with the hope of opening those bids shortly before Thanksgiving. If the process continues to move smoothly, the County expects to break ground in early 2017. It is estimated construction will take 18-24 months to complete.
The County Commissioners Association of Missouri (CCAM) recently announced that six legislators have been particularly helpful in their commitment to improving county government operations, not only for the most recently concluded 2016 session of the General Assembly, but also for work done in the past few years.
The CCAM board of directors voted in May to honor the lawmakers who have truly attempted to advance primary county bills, even though some did not make it through the legislative process.
In addition to Sen. Mike Parson (R-28), Sen. David Sater (R-29), Rep. Tom Flanigan (R-163), Rep. Denny Hoskins (R-54), and Rep. Jeanie Lauer (R-32), Rep. Lyndall Fraker (R-137), of Marshfield, will be presented with the County Advocate Award, at 9 a.m. Monday, June 27, in the Webster County Courthouse lobby.
Rep. Fraker’s HB 1817, which would have extended the sunset on the County Budget Law was held up at the end of the session. Fraker assured county commissioners that this would be one of his top priorities next year, and said he would make sure it got done early in the session. Unlike cities and the state, county governing bodies could not amend their annual budgets to reflect a decrease during revenue shortfalls. Several years ago, they won the authority to do so; however, that authority is scheduled to end on July 1.
In a show of appreciation for the local government/state partnership shaped by these legislators, the County Commissioners Association of Missouri is pleased to honor them.
CCAM was formed in 1983 by 330 commissioners in 110 Missouri counties. Only the charter counties of St. Charles, St. Louis, Jefferson and Jackson are excused from membership because they do not operate under a commission form of government. All administrative duties for CCAM are performed by the staff of the Missouri Association of Counties, which is headquartered in Jefferson City.
