Good morning,

We have received your request in regards to the Torrance County Detention Facility. The Town of Estancia does not have any relations in regards to a contract/services with TCDF other than to provide utilities such as water.
Could this request possibly be meant for Torrance County, whom has a contract with the Torrance County Detention Facility as opposed to the Town of Estancia? If this is not the case and you do in fact mean the Town of Estancia, please clarify as to what specifically you are looking for.

Thank you,

Michelle Dunlap
Deputy Clerk

Hello Ms. Dunlap,

I would like to revisit this request to ask whether or not your office would be in possession of any zoning or building plans and agreements created when the facility was initially constructed.

Thanks so much for your help,

From: Michelle Dunlap

Good afternoon Beryl,

The Town of Estancia does not have any of the requested documents as the Corrections Corporation of America facility was not within the Town limits upon construction.
