Seward, NE (AP) - Seward County leaders are going ahead with plans to upgrade the county sheriff's office and jail after years of pushing for the move and a resounding rejection in 2008 from voters to fund the project.

The Lincoln Journal Star reports that Seward County Commissioners voted unanimously Tuesday to approve design plans calling for an $11.85 million renovation and expansion of the Sheriff's Office, which includes the jail. While the commissioners discussed financing, they put off voting on how to pay for the work.

Commissioners chose expanding the existing building over constructing a new $12.6 million building, which were the two options presented at the conclusion of a $10,200 feasibility study done by Missouri architecture firm.
