Correction: Friday meeting about McNeil prison is for community; meet with consultants comes later

I made a mistake in the story that appeared in today’s News Tribune, in both the print and on-line editions.

There will be a meeting of community leaders this Friday at 4 p.m. in the International House at Pierce College in Lakewood, but it won’t be with the consultants who are studying which parts of Washington’s prison system should be shut down.

That will come later.

The governor’s budget office was surprised to see my story, especially since I said the community would be meeting with them and the consultants (and neither had been notified.)

So, this first meeting is more of a “come together” meet for the locals.

But that next meeting will have to come in a hurry. The deadline for the draft recommendation from the consultants is only 5 weeks away, Oct. 1.
