Courthouse employees settling into annex

“We were already having flooding issues, but the floods in July and August really escalated the problems,” Bell said. The records, which were stored in the basement of the courthouse, will have to be professionally cleaned before employees or the public can have access to them. “They are off limits until they are cleaned,” she said.

Circuit Court Judge Patterson has moved his office to the annex as well, while County Judge Colby Peel has moved to the Sheriff’s Office, Bell said. The county probation office is now located at the county jail.

Corbin said the move has gone smoothly and the county employees are working toward getting everyone situated. The annex also has added some locked doors and the courthouse bailiff will be on hand at the annex for added security.

Court will be held in the courtroom annex at the old courthouse location, and possibly in the Commission Board Room at the annex if there is a conflict in scheduling, Bell said. She added that the county will have to find a storage location for county records.
