In The Region:

The city of Euclid may scrap a major over-haul of its jail if Cuyahoga County decides to take over the two-decade-old facility.

The county hopes to create a money saving regional jail system by taking control of about a half-dozen suburban jails. Euclid Mayor Bill Cervenik says he’s in talks with the county about turning over the jail. He says the plan would save the city hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in operating costs and repairs.

“Right now, we can hold 83 prisoners, but we have no need to hold that many. Sometimes we hold prisoners for other communities and charge a fee, but that still doesn’t come close to making up for the inefficiency of the jail.”

Cervenik says Euclid has put its more than $4 million jail renovation plan on hold while it works with Cuyahoga County on a takeover. Under the county’s plan, the consolidated suburban jails would house misdemeanor prisoners. The county is working on a deal to take control of Cleveland’s jails,  where felony suspects would be held.
