PRINCETON – Bureau County’s board agreed to reject all bids on the new law enforcement center. At Tuesday night’s meeting, Architect Henry Pitner explained that eight companies who bid on the jail project we’re well over their expected price of  $11 million. Pitner says the sheriff’s department made some necessary cuts like housing Beaucom, the 911 center and more aggressive moves throughout to make sure operations, bed count and safety remain the priority. The department lost four bidders with the modifications, but will go out for re bid with its revised plan on Saturday.
