BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A firm has been hired to remodel the Burleigh County jail and courthouse.

The Bismarck Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/24vvYaY ) that Ubl Design received the $38,920 redesign contract from the Burleigh County Commission.

The firm will complete a space assessment needs study, plan a project budget and early design concepts after inmates are moved to a new combined county jail in southeast Bismarck.

The project will convert the 140-bed existing jail into more space for the sheriff’s office, prosecutors, information technology, an alcohol use monitoring program, training rooms and courtroom space.

The plan coincides with a special half-cent sales tax approved by voters to build a multi-county jail with neighboring Morton County.

The new jail is slated to begin operation by June of 2017. It will house nearly 500 inmates.
