Pennington County Jail May Receive Improvements to Kitchen, Laundry Room

A major renovation is planned for the Pennington County Jail, reports KOTA News. Currently, the facility operates with a laundry room with dryers which are nearly 30 years old and intended to serve an inmate population one-third of what it is today. The facility’s kitchen also struggles to produce the requisite meals for the facility.

The Pennington County Commission recently approved county staff to apply for a rezoning of blocks surrounding the jail to allow for a renovation of the kitchen and laundry facilities. The renovations will allow the facility to operate more efficiently and will result in an overall cost-savings for the county over time.
