Ohio Selling 1 Prison, Taking 1 Back
Ohio plans to sell only one of five state prisons it put on the auction block in an unexpected twist on privatization plans being announced Thursday.
The Associated Press has learned that the state will sell the Lake Erie Correctional Institution in AshtabulaÂ County to Corrections Corporation of America for $72.7 million,
more than the $50 million required to balance the state prisons budget.
Management Training Corporation, or MTC, of Centerville, Utah, will operate North Central Correctional Institution and the vacant Marion Juvenile Correctional Facility as a single prison camp,
saving 6 percent on state costs, according to information from the Ohio prisons department.
North Coast Correctional Treatment Facility in Lorain County, currently operated by MTC, will be returned to state control and merge with Grafton Correctional Institution.
