Law and justice center on docket

PUBLIC MEETING: Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors, 9 a.m. Tuesday, fourth floor, County Administration Center, 2 S. Green St., Sonora.


Multiple major construction projects are up for discussion at Tuesday’s Tuolumne County Board of Supervisors meeting.

The board will be asked to vote on items that would allow the county’s new juvenile hall, Columbia pool repairs and replacement of the Lime Kiln Road bridge over Curtis Creek to move forward. 

Now being called the Mother Lode Regional Detention Center, the county’s future  22,000 square-foot juvenile hall will hold 30 beds at its proposed location off Old Wards Ferry Road. The county proposes awarding a $595,366 contract to Vanir Construction Management for assistance with bidding for the main construction, record keeping, reviewing bids, construction management, inspections, safety and quality control.

Vanir was initially hired to oversee the $20 million project in January with a $195,000 contract to handle initial construction management duties.

The site of the juvenile center is going to eventually be developed into a multi-agency law and justice center with law enforcement stations, courts, a jail and legal offices. Grading, utilities work and an access road have been completed.

The juvenile center will hold 30 beds, with the option of adding 30 more in the future. However, the county is only expected to operate about 10 of the 30 beds when the center opens with the use expanding as the need arises.

About 80 percent, or $16 million, of the juvenile project will be paid for with a state grant, with the rest matched by the county.
