So you want a new jail? Why in the Hell didn’t you plan ahead before you built this one? Here’s how we fix it: take the top off the existing one, and construct a building five, no six, no EIGHT stories high!
This new jail would be a tri-county jail for Winona, Houston, and Olmsted counties ALL footing the bill.
With eight stories, the top two stories could have no bars on the windows, so they could remain open! I’m sure this is a solution to overcrowding 10 jails and the court system. We would have less court cases, so would need fewer judges and other court officials. A drastic savings all the way around!
Think about it — just a thought, since no one else is thinking!
