St. Croix Corrections project in state's capital budget
The long wait may be over for the St. Croix Correctional Center in New Richmond.
When Gov. Scott Walker released his list of proposed capital projects for 2011-13 two weeks ago, one item caught the eye of Jo Skalski, superintendent of the local Correctional Center.
After years of requesting funding, the center was one of the funding priorities in the proposal. About $3.2 million was suggested so the facility could replace aging housing and educational space.
