The final design plans for the new Mower County Jail and Justice Center could be ready for the public’s inspection later this month.

At Tuesday’s regular county board meeting, county coordinator Craig Oscarson said the architects are in the final design development stage of the jail/justice center plans.

Oscarson said they could be unveiled for all to see Tuesday, Aug. 26 at a meeting tentatively scheduled for 7 p.m. in the commissioners’ meeting room at the Law Enforcement Center.
