Rep. Terri Bryant Says Staff Start Moving in to Former IYC Murphysboro on Feb. 16

The former Illinois Youth Center in Murphysboro.

State Representative Terri Bryant says the activity around the former Murphysboro Youth Center is about to kick into high gear this week.

The Murphysboro republican says a group of employees will start moving in on Friday.
"The non-security staff has been told to start reporting there as their primary facility."
Bryant says she isn't sure how many staff members will report to work Friday. She says within about two months, the number will climb to one hundred.

When inmates start moving in sometime in March, the facility will operate as an adult minimum-security facility that'll offer drug treatment and career training.

Governor Rauner's budget proposal allocates over 26 million dollars for Murphysboro and a similar facility in Kewanee.
