The original bid, Which had exceeded the county's estimates, was reduced to $600,000' by change orders eliminating several features which the supervisors said they hoped could be restored to the plans at a later date. Among the eliminated items were an exercise yard and refrigeration. Plans for the correction center originally were a joint venture with the city of Nogales, but have been developed by the county alone since the city and county split over a choice of sites several months ago.
