Corrections Department Could Have Prison Choice Soon

Cheyenne, Wy – The Department of Corrections is taking a final look at documents provided by three communities hoping to get the new Medium Security Prison. Since D-O-C officials think the information is straight forward, Spokeswoman Melinda Brazzale says they can now move forward.
Brazzale says it is now possible that a recommended site could be chosen by the end of the year, but a final decision will need to be made by the legislature. At state is a 650 bed Medium Security prison. Once its built, it will go a long ways towards returning the some 550 Wyoming inmates who are currently out of state.
