Part of the Mahoning County Jail that has been closed for nearly three years will reopen on Monday.

Sheriff Jerry Greene said jail officials spent last week making sure everything was working in that part of the jail, including sinks, toilets and locks.  The cells had not been used due to funding issues.

New inmate fees instituted will help fund the Fifth Avenue jail, including a $40.00 reception fee.  If inmates can not pay the fee, the money will be taken from their commissary fund.
