The Atlanta Journal-Constitution - - COUNTY BY COUNTY - CAROLYN CUN­NING­HAM FOR THE AJC

The Cobb County jail, known as the Adult De­ten­tion Cen­ter, will re­ceive $505,465 in im­prove­ments.

The Cobb County Board of Com­mis­sion­ers voted 5-0 Oct. 10 in fa­vor of these re­quests from Cobb Sher­iff Neil Warren:

■ $388,682 by John­son Con­trol Inc. to re­place the Air Han­dling Unit in O Pod that is 20 years old and “has ex­ceeded end-oflife ex­pectancy,” ac­cord­ing to Warren.

■ $93,863 by Morse Watch­mans, Inc. to buy Morse Watch­man’s KeyBank / KeyWatcher key in­ven­tory sys­tem up­grades. The present com­put­er­ized in­ven­tory sys­tem, at nine years old, is in need of up­dates to the me­chan­i­cal and soft­ware com­po­nents. For bet­ter ac­count­abil­ity, the new sys­tem will be a net­work of elec­tronic vaults at strate­gic lo­ca­tions within the ADC, pro­vid­ing for se­cure stor­age of the keys and the on­go­ing in­ven­tory of which keys have been checked out by which per­son­nel.

■ $22,920 by Dvor­son’s Food Ser­vice Equip­ment Inc. to re­place three kitchen line ta­bles for meal prepa­ra­tion. The present three stain­less steel ta­bles are at least seven years old that are used to pre­pare 6,000 meals daily for all of the in­mates. The sub­struc­ture fram­ing on the ta­bles has de­te­ri­o­rated due to the con­stant clean­ing af­ter each meal prepa­ra­tion to com­ply with es­tab­lished clean­li­ness and in­spec­tion stan­dards, Warren added.

Fund­ing is from the 2016 Spe­cial Pur­pose Lo­cal Op­tion Sales Tax pro­gram.
