According to unnamed sources, the Lee Adjustment Center has surprisingly landed a federal contract, which is set to commence at the end of January 2013. The 22-year-old medium security facility recently failed to land a federal contract which would have housed illegal immigrants. Two other states were bidding for the contract, but our sources have indeed confirmed that the Lee Adjustment Center- located in Beattyville, KY- has all but finalized the deal. Consequently, the local community would benefit greatly from a federal contract, given that a considerable amount of money would instantly inundate the community... Good luck, and congratulations to the Lee Adustment Center!

Wonder if the employees will be subject to the same requirements for employment as the federal co's. If so, they will have a hard time finding enough employees, I am afraid. The federal co's have a riqous physical test, back ground check and even a credit check. If you can't pass all three they will not hire you. I would love to see this place land a contract, if they can find the employees to work there(if they have the same federal requirements) Folks when you mess with the feds, it isn't like the state, who you know. That has no bearing.

I call BS on this. Somebody call Edmond Shelby and get him on the story right away.

That place will never get a Federal contract. This is according to my friend. She said she had enough pull to stop that company. Beattyville will dry up and blow away if I have anything to do with it.

I got my information from internal sources. It's true. We are going to go federal. Lac is already set up for it and we will get it.

This would be good news for those who work there. It would be a big help to this area. A federal contract would mean money. It could help this county to grow. I hope this goes through.

I've been hearing that Lac stands a good chance of getting the contract. Even better than last time when another facility got it. I sure hope we do. We could all use the money as could Beattyville.

There is a lot of people in this area who don't want a Federal contract for LAC. The reasons they give are lame to say the least. To my thinking the more money in the area betters my chances of getting some of it.

How will it bring more money in? The employees will still be employees of CCA and will still be paid CCA wages and benefits, not federal government employee wages and benefits.

To my understanding, any federal contracted workers do not receive federal benefits, however they are paid higher wages based on a certain percentage of what a regular federal employee would earn.

I though it may be a help to this area. I know what will happen if they close it down. We will pass Owsley Co. for the poorest county. Oh well, we can't let them out do us!

At first I thought it was all rumors, but I believe that we are going to get the fed contract. Only I don't think that LAC will get it by the end of January. I've heard it through reliable sources that we will have it by March 15th. We are so underpaid for what we do and have to put up with that most of us are praying that we get it.

They don't deserve the contract. Bunch of goddamned bums.

If they do get the contract, I hope the feds hold the staff to the same standards as those that work for the federal prison. Otherwise it might be a mess. When you deal with federal inmates it is a different story. Even they don't, I hope the LAC employees get federal wages like those that work in the federal system as well as federal benefits. IF so, this will be really good for our communities around Beattyville.

CCA has severval departments that look for
contracts. If there is a empty bed CCA is for a Inmate to fill it. Who cares who is in there. There is no way their geting out. LAC is one of the few places in Lee Co. left to work. We Lee Countians need to support any employment that come in the county. A job is a job. A way to take care of our family. Food, Clothing, Insurance, Christmas presents.

it all sounds good but I just barely make enough for any of those things. If it wasn't for my in-laws and other family I wouldn't even be having Christmas this year. But I'm sure that people like the wardens there will be getting a fatass check

I talked to a federal co this weekend. THey said that all federal contractual prison workers were subject to the same standards as they are. That means they will have to pass a physical and very intensive background check.This includes criminal and credit checks not only for you and/ or spouse but your family as well. They will be asking your neighbors about you and asking your references about you. They will check not only you but like I said anyone invovled with you. What LAC will do is move thier employees around. What I mean is if they can't pass this test then they will transfer people in that can. He said he has seen it done before in other LAC prisons.

I understand the background checks, credit checks, etc for me, but what does the rest of the family have to do with me? That part doesn't make sense at all. They are going to punish you for something you have no control over.

It is to make sure you are not corruptible I think. But we all know that doesn't mean much.
I know when this person was hired they told him things in the interview that even his family was not aware of until he told them after the interview. Some things we were but never discussed with the gentleman such as a great great uncle being a registered communist back in the 50's. They also check with all previous employers as well.
But he wasn't worried about it as his mother had been given a high security clearance back in the late 60's to work on a federal project and his sister had cleared a background check for a federal job as well a few years before.
