Sheriff’s staff moves into board room

The McLeod County Sheriff’s Department’s clerical staff and administration has moved into the former county board meeting room.
The personnel made the move to make way for the construction of an addition onto the current McLeod County Jail.
Several county staff members, representatives from the city of Glencoe, three county board members and members of the construction management team met Thursday morning for a pre-construction meeting, and heard about the move of the sheriff’s office personnel.
At that meeting, it was decided that Scott Grivna, the county’s building maintenance supervisor, would be the main point of contact if the construction management company had questions or issues that needed to be addressed.
The group also heard:
• Work on opening up Judd Avenue between 10th and 11th Streets could begin as early as this week. Ives Avenue will be closed as part of the project.
Gary Schreifels, public works director for the city of Glencoe, said he had some concerns, but added that he could bring those up with Contegrity, the construction management company, after the meeting.
• Agreed that it should establish at least three, and maybe four, handicapped parking stalls on 11th Street on the north side of courthouse because parking on the east side will be lost during construction.
It also was agreed upon to put two reserved parking spots on 11th Street for district court judges.
