DOC Savings Plan Closes Enfield Correction Institution
Enfield Correction Institution will close on Oct. 1 if the plan Department of Correction Commissioner Leo Arnone submitted Friday is approved by the Office of Policy and Management.
The prison will follow Bergin Correctional Institution which is set to close on July 15.
Gov. Dannel P. Malloy required the commissioners of all state agencies to submit a savings plan by Friday to help the administration come up with $1.6 billion to close the budget gap left by the failed concession package. The plans, submitted to Malloy’s Budget Director Benjamin Barnes today, will contain a total of somewhere around 6,500 layoffs and reductions in state programs and services.
