The Northern Lakes Correctional facility in the city of Baldwin might be keeping its' doors open.


The Baldwin village president says the GEO Group, who owns the prison, is paying for a $7-million dollar upgrade to Baldwin's waste water treatment plant.


Geo says they now anticipate renewing a contract to house prisoners from Vermont and expect 400 additional prisoners to come from Ohio.


The company also says they have been in talks to house illegal immigrants arrested as the federal government cracks down on illegal immigration.
