Commissioners settle on design for new Beltrami County Jail

BEMIDJI - Several topics relating to the design of the new Beltrami County Jail were voted on by the Board of Commissioners during its meeting on Tuesday, including increasing the number of beds from 242 to 243.

The board also considered whether or not to include an outdoor recreation space or a sweat lodge in the jail's design, both of which were voted against by the majority.

When a final vote was taken to decide the timeline for the design of the jail, the commissioners chose to pursue the fastest option that would hopefully reduce the costs of the project, which has been budgeted for $80 million.
