So, How Hard Is City Pulling for State Not to Renew Contract for Jail on Trinity?
But more to the point, the city would like that sumbitch moved, as it stands in the way of Trinity River Corridor Project development. Writes Scott:
The fact that Dawson's contract ends on January 15, 2011 is a significant date for the city of Dallas: If the state renews the contract, the proposed riverfront redevelopment could be put on hold indefinitely. It's possible, then, we may see members of the Dallas delegation and related development interests pushing for non-renewal, though certainly CCA will have its own lobbyists on the other side.
