​​​RAYMONDVILLE – Willacy County has sold the former Willacy County Correctional Center to Management & Training Corp. (MTC) for just over ​$2 million.

The 53-acre property on I-69 sold in March as part of an agreement that released the prison from its $68 million debt to its bond holders. MTC will pay the county $3 a day for every inmate held in the facility. 

Centerville, Utah-based MTC is repairing and making improvements to the facility's 1,000-bed housing unit. It also removed ten Kevlar-covered domes damaged in the February 2015 riot that led to the 3,000-bed facility's closure.
