Cooling tower to be added to county jail

The commissioners signed a contract Monday with the Hydronic and Steam Equipment Co. of South Bend to build the tower for $248,254. The tower would enhance the jailís cooling system and add a space to store water.
The commissioners approved an emergency resolution Jan. 22 to seek bids for the project out of concern that the towerís installation would take several weeks to complete. Without a new cooling tower, the jailís air conditioning would be at risk of breaking this summer.
