In less than a month, the state-owned STAR Academy in Custer will go up for bid again.
The 170 acre site was home to a juvenile correctional facility went to auction in October, but didn’t sell.
If the facility doesn’t sell in January, one state lawmaker says he wants to introduce legislation reopen the STAR Academy.
State Representative Tim Goodwin originally voted to sell the facility, but he says that was a mistake. He says the state needs a place to send juveniles.
