Fire marshal's office approves occupancy certificate for Justice Center

Updated: Aug 27

MOUND CITY – After a few weeks of small items holding back the issuance of an occupancy permit for the new Justice Center, the Kansas State Fire Marshal's Office gave the county approval on Monday morning, according to Linn County Sheriff Kevin Friend.


Isolated problems prevented the fire marshal's office from issuing the permit in mid-July. A fire door without a proper label and an exhaust fan that didn't work kept the state from giving the green light for prisoners to be moved from the old jail.


Friend said that most of the offices had been moved into the new building. The occupancy permit was needed only for the jail.
