Many have already weighed in on the proposed Schuylkill County pre-release prison at the site of the former GIANT in downtown Pottsville.
So, we wanted to get a semi-accurate assessment of the public opinion on this and created another reader survey.
Tell us what you think of this idea.
Schuylkill County reportedly had the 2.1-acre property assessed after GIANT closed up shop on July 9. The county has long wanted to build a pre-release prison to ease chronic overcrowding at the historic prison behind the Courthouse.
But many seem opposed to the idea of putting this facility in the downtown Pottsville area.
On Wednesday, July 22, Pottsville city officials expressed their concerns with Schuylkill Commissioners.
Now is the time to tell us what you think.
Take a second to answer our poll question below. We’ll report on the results this weekend.
