Commission Appeals Jail Closure

Choctaw County officials are appealing an order by the state of Alabama to close the local jail.

The state fire marshal's office ordered the closure, citing a number of violations at the jail.

Choctaw County commissioners have decided to file a formal appeal of the closure in Choctaw County Circuit Court.

As it stands, commissioners say it could cost around $ 1 million to fix all the violations cited by the state.
