The Madison City Council voted 4-3 to move forward with the renewal of Three Spring's business license and some members of the community do not agree with the decision.
Three Springs is a correctional facility for at risk youth. In the August of 2017 two residents escaped, sending the community on edge as questions about the security of the facility arose. The facility had a total of four runways and one escapee in 2017.
The renewal is pending the results of a safety audit that will be completed within the next 90 days.
Mayor Paul Finley said that based on the things that the city plans to put in place to improve the safety at the facility the council is willing to move forward with the renewal.
