New Jail in Milo? 

Officials in Milo are in talks to bring a new corrections facility to the area.The town owns a piece of land on Route 11. A company called Corrections Corporation of America is eyeing the site for a medium-security facility.It would house 2,200 inmates.Officials have been working on the project for more than a year.Last week they met in Augusta to talk to legislators about it.They believe such a facility would bring 400 to 500 jobs to the region including guards, cooks, and nurses.Town officials are now hoping for a thumbs up from legislators and the governor in order to move forward with the plan. That could still take more than a year.
