Editorial: Good luck Appleton on federal prison bid

Email

Appleton and its residents are hoping that Prairie Corrections Facility located there can score a major contract to house federal prisoners.

The prison facility closed Feb. 2 laying off nearly 400 employees.

The four-year guaranteed contract could bring 1,200 to 1,400 federal inmates to the Appleton-based prison. The contract would also allow the facility to continue to house prisoners for other states, like Minnesota.
