Clay County Jail Up & Running

Spencer, IA (KICD)–The new Clay County jail is now under full operation.

Sheriff Randy Krukow tells KICD News that they moved all of their inmates in on Thursday.

Krukow says they cleared out of the old jail in early August.

Krukow says having everything on one level and the elimination of blind spots are a couple of the big plusses of the new building.

The new jail can house a total of 48 prisoners including work release. In May of 2011 Clay County voters approved a $5.6 million bond issue to construct a new jail with over 65 percent voting in favor.
