downloadArizona Corrections Director Charles Ryan said it should take 60-90 days to transition to a new operator of the state prison in Golden Valley. Ryan said it is intended that the contract allowing MTC to operate the prison simply be transferred to another operator in the private sector. Ryan told reporters at a Phoenix news conference that there’s still no estimate of how much it will cost to repair the extensive criminal damage inmates inflicted during four days of rioting in early July. He said it could be February before the repairs are completed.
