Accomplishments in 1997-98

  • Procured the site for the Franklin Correctional Institution. When constructed, this facility will provide jobs and economic relief to local citizens and businesses adversely affected by the net ban.
  • Worked with the South Florida Water Management District, the Army Corps of Engineers and Florida Gulf Coast University on the eradication of more than 600 acres of melaleuca, Australian pine, and other exotic trees in south Florida by using inmate labor.
  • Implemented electric power load management projects at ten major institutions in conjunction with two utility companies to reduce the department's costs in electricity. This resulted in a cost avoidance of approximately $35,000 per institution per year.
