City took higher bid on Wastewater plant management which will cost about 1 mill over the life of the contract, they spent at least 1 mill on new garbage trucks and more will be spent for garbage trucks in the upcoming year.

Adams County Jail implements new visiting system

Loved ones can now chat online with those lodged in the ACJ

Adams County Jail has begun implementing Electronic Visitation. 

Electronic visitation allows families or friends to video chat online with those lodged in the jail.

Adams County Sheriff Brent Fischer said electronic visitation will improve officer safety.

“Usually on a visitation day we have to move inmates from a section to the visitation room,” said Fischer. “This way we’ll significantly decrease, if not eliminate the inmates we’re moving.”

Fischer said the new system didn't cost the jail, but money won't be coming in either.

“We’re not really seeing any revenue, which people but wonder why, but we’re reaping the benefits of officer safety and the time that’s involved.” 

All visits will also be recorded to allow the Sheriff's Department to monitor information exchanged.

Visits can be scheduled by visiting https://www.securustech.net/videovisitation.

Other new items at the Adams County Jail include commissary kiosks in the jail sections. The items are delivered once a week and include snack packs, e-cigarettes and other assorted items.

The Adams County Jail also recently passed the annual jail inspection for the second year in a row.  Fischer said that’s thanks to the jail staff and administration. However, the Illinois Department of Corrections still strongly encourages the county to pursue re-designing and build a new facility.
