Today we were advised that there is a scam phone call going around saying that family members are in the Kewaunee County Jail following an accident. The scammer is requesting money for bail. This is not something that we would call a family member about. If you do have any questions regarding bail, please contact the sheriffs department. Please do not give out personal information over the phone. Be safe!

Over the past seven years of planning for our Jail project, I have provided numerous updates and overviews through these articles as well as at local meetings and events. The fact that I have not provided such an update in quite a while is by no means an indicator that we have not been actively submersed in this planning process. There has in fact been a great deal of work that has been going on and I would like to provide an update of where we currently are in this planning process.
Our last major benchmark was embarking upon phase three of this project which provided us the opportunity to focus on floor plans and operational implications of the various options. The main focus of our work has been refinement. This means that we have looked at this project from every perceivable angle, and when possible reduced the size and scope so as to arrive at the absolute minimum costs, while maintaining operational effectiveness. I want to thank our County Administrator Scott Feldt and our Finance Director Paul Kunesh for their tireless work in maintaining accurate and relevant financial data throughout this process. I would like to thank our County Board members who have dedicated so much of their personal time in reflecting the needs and concerns of those that they represent. And finally to the Command Staff here at the Sheriff’s Department, for continually thinking outside the box in how we can maintain operations given the financial limitations in this current time.
Approximately two years ago we came forward with the original plan for this project which included facilities for the Jail, Dispatch, Sheriff’s Offices, and Evidence/ Equipment storage. These are typically the functions that get included into a project of this type, however when the cost estimations came back, we quickly realized we would need to approach this project much differently than other communities have in the past. Much like everything we do in local government, we had to differentiate between what we wanted to have and what we needed to have. In the end, the pressing issue has been and continues to be the Jail and the associated Dispatch Center, so with that we removed everything that was not directly related to those two pieces of operations and came back with a cost reduction of over 10 million dollars.
It was at this time that we were able to work with our Architects and Consultants to arrive at a final floor plan which we could then base an accurate project cost from. After many meetings and extensive refinements, the Jail Planning Committee approved the proposed floor plan just this past week. We were also provided with the impact that this refined project would now have on our property taxes.
As it currently stands the impact to the tax bill of a $200,000 property would approximately $40.00 per year. While none of us ever wants to see any increase in our taxes, this is a minimal impact for a project that has plagued our community for over 20 years, and will provide us with a facility that will serve not just our generation, but our children’s and grandchildren’s generations. It is a project that provides the foundation for future phased growth based on the needs of those future generations.
The next step in this process may be the most critical, as we must now focus on providing updated information to the overall County Board as well as to our community. We will be updating our Board members at the next County Board meeting which will be held May 17th at 6:00 pm. At this meeting they will be given an update on the overall process as well as the accepted floor plan and associated costs. We will then have another meeting on June 21st where the Architects and Cost Estimators will be there to provide information and answer questions. It will be out of these two meetings that the Board will need to make the decision of whether to move forward or place this item on a referendum in the fall. This is also the opportunity for all of us as community members to become more familiar with this project.
I would invite anyone who has any questions, to please feel free to reach out to me and I will answer any and all questions that I can. We are now in the final stretch of a project that has been 20 years in the making, and I am encouraged by all of the great input we have gotten over the past seven years of planning from so many throughout our community.
I truly believe this is a project that we will be proud of upon its completion and will serve to not only house our inmate population, but more importantly provide the facility and resources to change lives for the better. It is my hope that in the future those who find themselves as residents of our jail can say it was the turning point in their lives that provided the road map to make them better members of our community. I can be reached at (920)255-1100. Thank you!

Please see below for announcement regarding upcoming roadwork on STH 29 in Kewaunee County.

Governor Evers approves WIS 29 improvements in Kewaunee County

​Construction begins April 11



(Kewaunee) To invest in Wisconsin’s transportation system, Governor Evers signed $3.94 million contract to improve 11.7 miles of WIS 29 from the Brown/Kewaunee county line in the town of Montpelier to County C in West Kewaunee in Kewaunee County. Construction begins Monday, April 11, 2022 and expected to finish by July 2022. WIS 29 will remain open during construction.



Northeast Asphalt, Inc. from Greenville, Wis. is the Prime Contractor.



Project improvements

This is a resurfacing-level improvement project. Work includes:

Milling and resurfacing of the existing asphaltic lanes and shoulders
Widening paved shoulders to 5 feet
Installing centerline and shoulder rumble strips
Adding gravel to existing shoulders
Replacing culvert pipes
Upgrading guardrail
Permanent signing and pavement marking


Traffic impacts

WIS 29 will remain open to traffic throughout construction with lane closures and flagging operations during work. Access to side roads and adjacent properties will be maintained throughout the duration of the project.



Project Benefits

The existing pavement surface is deteriorating. Improvements will reduce surface roughness and provide a smoother and safer ride for motorists. Improvements will also extend the life of the pavement structure while reducing future maintenance costs. Repair and replacement of culverts help ensure adequate drainage to mitigate possible flooding. Rumble strips will alert errant vehicles leaving the lane of travel, and wider paved shoulders provide enhanced opportunity to correct the vehicle back into the proper lane of travel.



More information

Please see the Northeast Region 511 Wisconsin family of construction project websites at https://projects.511wi.gov/region/northeast/.



Work Zone Safety

Each year in Wisconsin, both highway workers and motorists are killed and injured in crashes that happen in highway construction zones. Motorists should slow down, be patient and pay attention to their surroundings in this and all work zones.

For more information regarding work zone rules for motorists, the law restricting hand-held devices, and general work zone safety information, please see our work zone safety website at https://wisconsindot.gov/Pages/safety/education/workzone/.

Road work zones are necessary for the upkeep and improvement of Wisconsin's infrastructure, and every year thousands of hard-working men and women participate in street, highway and bridge projects statewide. While all roadwork is temporary, the decisions - and mistakes - that drivers make in work z...
