From: Flores, Dalia

Mr. Lipton:

In response to your follow up email dated February 7, 2017 to Maria Franco, no privately run prisons exist within the territorial boundaries of the City of San Angelo, nor in Tom Green County.

The nearest privately run facilities are located in Big Spring, Texas (Howard County) and Eden, Texas (Concho County).

This is the reason the City Clerk did not have any documents, etc., to provide to you.

I have attached a news article regarding the two aforementioned facilities that was published in August, 2016.

Should you need anything further, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you,
