Legislature to consider detention center move

MONTPELIER—State Rep. Topper McFaun, R-Barre, has introduced a bill that would open an emergency juvenile correctional facility in Windsor.
The bill would set aside $3 million in existing Vermont Department of Children and Families funding in order to operate the temporary facility, which would consist of 10 beds at the former Southeast State Correctional Facility. The Windsor facility would house up to 10 adolescent boys who are involved with the Vermont juvenile justice system.
