Monona County to vote on $6 million jail bond

Local News

Monona county residents will be heading to the polls to vote on a 6 million dollar bond for a new jail, Tuesday.

The current one was built back in the 1970’s and was designed to hold only 12 inmates.

Jail staff frequently deal with over-crowding causing them to transfer criminals to neighboring counties or to leave them on the streets.

The proposed new facility would double the jail’s current capacity.
