Grant to fund work at juvenile center

More space is needed for programs designed to steer teens and children away from crime, so the county is considering plans to renovate the juvenile detention center in Franklin.

The county will receive about $92,000 in grant funds this year from the Indiana Department of Correction that can be used to pay the costs of providing juvenile detention services.

Detention center director Kristi Bruther wants to use most of that money to rebuild part of the 22-year-old building located off Hospital Road in Franklin.
