The Bartlett State Jail is proposed for closing by the Texas Legislature. The closing would take effect September 1, 2017. See attached report (select pages) from the Texas Senate Finance Committee.
If closed, this will impact the City in good and bad ways.
This will reduce the operation load on the wastewater treatment plant. With a reduced load, there may not be a need to build a new plant, thus saving thousands, if not millions, of dollars.
The City Council will meet on Monday, April 3, 2017 to discuss this urgent situation and to plan for the state jail closure.
