Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office crime lab plans are set

(Hillsboro, Pevely) The Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office along with the design team have finalized the plans for the crime lab. Sheriff Dave Marshak says getting through this process feels good, and now is the time to discuss getting bids for the construction work.

Sheriff Marshak says the balance of wanting to get the crime lab construction moving quickly, yet holding back a little to find the best bid is not easy.

Sheriff Marshak says the companies that bid for this project will need to have some specialty skills.

The plan is to send out construction bids after the first of the year and give it a 30-day window for returns. If the process moves along, a construction start date could be in the spring. The crime lab will be located in Pevely.
