Posted by wlpo on April 4, 2012

Have an opinion about the governor wanting to close Dwight Correctional Center?  There is a public hearing about the potential closure.

The bipartisan Commission on Government Forecasting and Accountability will host the hearing today at 4pm inside Dwight High School.  The commission will give a recommendation to the governor but it’s not binding.

Dwight Mayor Bill Wilkey says over 450 people work at the correctional center making it the second biggest employer in the village.  Among the workforce is an estimated 70 workers from La Salle County.

State Representative Frank Mautino is among the expected speakers.
