Prison tours help show State officials
building is updated and ready to house inmates

by Leslie Ehrenberg

Two weeks ago Senate Bonding Committee members traveled to Appleton for a tour of CCA/Prairie Correctional Facility. This past week members of the Minnesota’s Prison Population Task Force received a tour.

Among key players involved in the tour were members of Corrections Corporation of America (CCA), Rep. Tim Miller, Sen. Lyle Koenen, and Swift County and City of Appleton officials.

“Each time we meet with a group or committee like this we feel energized that there is progress,” said Swift County Commissioner Gary Hendrickx. The proposal on the table is to lease the empty 1,600-bed prison in Appleton from CCA rather than spending $141.5 million to expand prison facilities at Rush City.
