The county Board of Supervisors will be asked to approve a $2.47 million state juvenile detention facility construction grant request on behalf of the county Probation Department.

The grant would be used to upgrade the facility's security, facility programming, safety and health care. The upgrade also would increase the number of beds by 18, to 90.

The county must contribute a matching cash amount of $489,000 and an in-kind match of $200,009.

The Board of Supervisors meets in open session at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday in chambers at 940 W. Main St., El Centro.

The board will be asked to authorize acceptance of two law enforcement grants associated with the Glamis Dunes and the Sheriff's Office.
