Work-release expansion plans get green light

County officials will know early next year how much planned construction to expand the county’s work release program will cost taxpayers.

The Johnson County Commissioners approved letting a committee deciding what type of expansion is needed spend $4,500 to hire an architect.

The architect will create designs to both remodel the program’s current building and build a new one.

The architect will also give the committee estimates on how much the construction and operating costs would be, community corrections director Albert Hessman said.
