Schadl says they also had plans to update the loading dock area, so trucks could drop-off their loads outside the prison walls.  He says they’ll continue to make bonding money requests during future legislative sessions.

The St. Cloud Prison is a level four closed security institution, with a population of about 1,000 prisoners.  The facility was built in 1889.
