Staunton City Manager Bob Stripling says the city of Staunton will ask the state for the option to buy the doomed correctional center for $1.00.
The city made the proposal after learning that the center would be closing at the end of the year.
There is no specific plan at this point, but officials say they want to use the property to bring in more jobs.
The state has yet to release a statement.
