A mold issue at the Grant County Juvenile Detention Center (D-Home) is causing officials to once again look into the larger renovations needed at the facility.

Following discussions for the past several years regarding what the future of the D-Home would be, Grant County Commissioners and county council, in early 2020, affirmed an intention to renovate the building to house female adult inmates and keep 14 juvenile beds. At the time, it was noted that the Grant County Jail is routinely overcrowded while the D-Home rarely gets anywhere near its 46-bed capacity.
