Help You Cell

A worker sits atop the Hoquiam Jail expansion project Tuesday. The Hoquiam City Council accepted a bid from Western Washington Construction to complete the project for $311,000 in early September, and the company broke ground on the expansion on Oct. 5. Hoquiam Police Chief Jeff Myers said construction is expected to take four months. The new addition will house 12 female inmates, with the two current female cells being converted to male cells, bringing the jail’s bunk capacity for men to 18. The expansion will help the jail make room for more inmates, as it is regularly over capacity, said Myers.
