Forum on the Dane County Jail

Forum on the Dane County Jail

Members may be interested in attending this forum on the Dane County jail hosted by Dane County Supervisor Jenni Dye. It will be an opportunity to follow up from our April forum on jailing the mentally ill and League testimony in favor of a plan that would build fewer jail cells and create a restoration center to divert mentally ill and addicted persons from the jail into appropriate treatment.

Wednesday, July 12 at 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM CDT
Fitchburg Community Center
5510 Lacy Rd, Fitchburg, Wisconsin 53711

Join Dane County Supervisors Jenni Dye, George Gillis, Dorothy Krause, Paul Rusk, and Shelia Stubbs and Dane County Sheriff Dave Mahoney for a forum to discuss plans for the Dane County Jail.

In June, the county received the last of three potential options for renovating the county's jail space to bring the jail into compliance with modern standards and regulations and allow the county to close the aging jail space in the City County Building. 

Please join us for a forum where you will have a chance to learn more about the county's plans and discuss the future of the jail.
