Like many of you, it has been an honor to serve this community in a variety of capacities. One of the most important is formerly serving on the Clay County Courthouse, Jail, and Law Enforcement Facility Planning Committee. Our committee visited a number of law enforcement centers and jails in South Dakota and Iowa. We also inspected our own facility.

Observing water seeping from our infrastructure onto a blue tarp protecting all our technology systems is only one of a countless number of building deficiencies caused by age and deterioration. After three years of working on this project, to include current service on the Citizens for the New Public Safety Center, I believe the following requires our collective attention. It matters.
