Stearns County Jail has completed phase one of its $5.1 million remodeling project.
Sheriff John Sanner says the first floor of the Law Enforcement Center has been reconstructed to make better use of the female housing unit and work release inmates, both of which were previously located on the second floor.

Stearns County will now focus on finding a long-term, 30-year solution.
