The county is having difficulty keeping people and wildlife out of its new jail.
The $20 million Davis County justice complex under construction in west Farmington is nearly complete, with a March 1 opening date.Commission Chairman Gayle Stevenson Wednesday asked that curious visitors, including county employees, not wander into the complex to look around on their own.
Unauthorized visitors get in the way of construction workers and may cause a liability problem, Stevenson said. Public tours will be scheduled when the complex is completed.
In addition to curious humans, the complex is being visited by local wildlife. Construction workers report a raccoon is living somewhere in the building, and have also found an owl, stray cats and various other creatures.
