GOSHEN Cooling tower to be added to county jail

A new cooling tower will be added to the Elkhart County Jail.
Posted on Jan. 29, 2013 at 12:00 a.m.

GOSHEN — The Elkhart County commissioners have awarded a bid to install a new cooling tower at the Elkhart 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 jail’s 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 tower’s installation would take several weeks to complete. Without a new cooling tower, the jail’s air conditioning would be at risk of breaking this summer.

A North Carolina prosecutor was the intended target of an elaborate kidnapping plot, but the kidnappers looked up the wrong address on the Internet and abducted the prosecutor's father instead, according to an indictment released Tuesday, April 22, 2014. Authorities have said the kidnapping was retaliation for Colleen Janssen's prosecution of Melton for his involvement in a 2011 shooting. Melton, a high-ranking member of the Bloods gang, orchestrated the abduction from behind bars using a cellphone, the indictment said.
