ELLSWORTH, Kan. (AP) _ A new minimum-security unit is set to open at the Ellsworth Correctional Facility.
Kansas Department of Corrections Secretary Ray Roberts will be among those attending the grand opening Friday at the Ellsworth prison's east unit. It will house 95 minimum security inmates.
The unit will be in the former St. Francis Academy Ellsworth. The state bought the building this summer for about $350,000.
Prison spokesman Todd Britton says the state put another $100,000 in renovations into the building. Sixty-eight inmates will be moved into the unit on Tuesday.
