Cuomo to close Camp Georgetown, 6 other state prisons

ALBANY – Governor Andrew Cuomo announced yesterday the closure of seven prisons across New York, including the minimum security prison Camp Georgetown in Madison County.



According to Cuomo, closing these prisons will eliminate approximately 38,000 unused and unneeded beds and will save taxpayers $72 million this year and $112 million the next.

“The state’s prison system has been too inefficient and too costly,” said Cuomo. “[This plan] succeeds in targeting facilities for closure without compromising public safety.”
