Southern Ute Indian Reservation – On October 9, 2019, the Tribe announced the decision to close the Southern Ute Detention Center no later than December 31, 2019. Tribal Council has been committed to determining ways the Permanent Fund could operate in the most cost-effective manner.
Since that decision was made, Tribal Council reconsidered the determining factors, including new solutions to offset operational expenses. The Southern Ute Detention Center will remain open pending additional review.
