Prison's Food Service Building To Be Remodeled

Posted Friday, April 20, 2012 --- 6:55 a.m.

WAUPUN, Wis. (AP) -- Remodeling the Waupun state prison's aging food service building is expected to begin in November.

State building commissioners have approved spending more than $6 million to update the kitchen and make other improvements. The Department of Corrections says the 1914 food service building was last remodeled in 1965. Facilities manager Kevin Reid-Rice says it desperately needs an overhaul.

The Fond du Lac Reporter ( ) says a well will also be added at the prison and a cell block will get a new roof.
