LAS VEGAS -- The Roos-N-More zoo in Moapa could reopen as soon as this weekend, according to Clark County.

The county announced Monday that it had come to an agreement with the zoo which would allow it to reopen as soon as this weekend.

Officials ordered the zoo closed Jan. 10, after an inspection found several code violations, including health and safety issues.

When code enforcement officials returned to the zoo Monday, they found many issues had been addressed, including improved electrical and signage issues. However, the zoo must still make arrangements for alternative bathrooms and stop the public from going into the home on the property.

The zoo owners had been using the home as a gift shop and allowing the public to use the home's bathrooms. The owners are working to address those issues and are planning to bring in a modular bathroom unit.
