TYC To Conduct Community Meeting
The Texas Youth Commission ( TYC) will conduct an informational community meeting in Giddings on Saturday, April 30, 2011, to hear from the community about the impact of the Giddings State School on Lee County. The meeting will be held in the Giddings High School Cafetorium, located at 2337 North Main Street (a.k.a. Highway 77 South), from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
Current and projected budget shortfalls, along with reduced youth populations, will require TYC to close up to three of its 10 secure facilities across the state. When closures take place, remaining TYC facilities may be required to expand their youth populations. Agency leaders are interested in hearing whether specific communities have the resources to support an increase in the number of youth and employees.
