NEW JAIL CLEARED TO OPEN
On Thursday 17 Jun 04 the Washington County
Commissioners held a meeting between the Sheriff’s Office,
Wachtel & McNalley architects as well as representatives
from the Washington County Building Department concerning the
functioning of emergency power lighting in the new jail. The
building inspector contended the new jail did not conform to
standards in the manner that proper egress and emergency power
lighting is generated. Rick Smith of Wachtel & McNalley
conjected the jail did meet state standards by wiring lighting
in parallel such that if one lamp burns out the other will remain
illuminated. Similar to other county correctional facilities
in the state, the Washington County Jail utilizes an emergency

Subsequent to an appeal hearing held in Canton
this morning before the Department of Commerce Board of Building
Appeals, Mr. Smith informed Sheriff Schlicher that the appeal
of the Sheriff’s office was upheld and a variance was
granted, resulting in a stay to be issued by 2 to 3 p.m. this
afternoon. As a result, the Sheriff’s Office will begin
the moving process and the transfer of inmates will be completed
over the next two days.
The delay in moving costs the Sheriff’s
Office approximately $101 in utilities per day and building
loan payments of $670 per day. This estimate does not include
the utility and operational costs in maintaining the old jail
during the same time period or the revenue lost in the inability
to rent excess space to prisoners from neighboring counties.

at 374-7677 or 568-2560 or Captain Jack Brum at 374-7677.
