The Goose Creek prison, now under construction in the Matanuska-Susitna Borough; won’t be completed until 2012, yet some in the state corrections department are examining a plan to privatize the facility. On Tuesday, Deputy Corrections Commissioner Dwayne Peebles briefed a state House Finance subcommittee on the possible benefits of privatizing the facility. Peebles said the briefing came at the direction of a last year’s legislature.
