The City of Mineral Wells held no contract for the former prison facility
(Corrections Corporation of America); they were under contract with the
State of Texas. We did have a lease agreement with them, for a parcel of
undeveloped property which they never developed or used. I will email that
to you, if you would like.

The only other thing in the way of a contract was a letter agreement for
the use of certain City buildings for temporary housing of inmates in the
event of any emergency, I am attaching those letters herewith. Just let me
know if you would like the lease. Thanks.

Hello Ms. Formby,

Thank you so much for your response, and I apologize for the delay in my own. Would it be possible to get the lease electronically? That would be greatly appreciated.

Dear Ms. Lipton:

My apologies for the delay in responding. A careful search of City records
turned up very few items on your list regarding Corrections Corporation of
America, but we did have three agreements for the use of inmate labor, from
2009, 2012, and 2013. I have attached those herewith. I hope this is
responsive to your request. Thank you.
