Rutherford Wants Better Planning For Facility Closures


State facilities are being closed down with no plan for what to do with those empty buildings afterward… according to Republican candidate for governor Dan Rutherford, who says that will change if he’s elected next year. 

 

Rutherford says he’s not objecting to the need to shut down facilities from time to time, but says it shouldn’t happen without a game plan for what comes next… such as selling the property or finding an alternative use for it. 

 

Rutherford says right now, there isn’t even a comprehensive list of all state property assets, much less a plan for how to dispose of them.  That lack of planning has led to abrupt, unpleasant surprises in communities where large facilities suddenly sit vacant… like Jacksonville after the shutdown of its developmental center.
