The Logan County Courthouse will be closed until further notice after sustaining damage from Friday's severe thunderstorm.
The clock tower was damaged from 80 MPH straight line winds.
(Pictured near fire hydrant: A large piece of the clock tower was blown to 119 South Madriver Street Friday.)
A CORSA engineer ruled the building and the surrounding grounds unsafe until the entire 70-foot tower is removed, which could take up to 90 days.
County elected officials met at the Logan County JDC Sunday afternoon to determine new locations for each department.
Commissioner John Bayliss said the following moves will be effective for at least one week.
The Logan County Common Pleas Court will relocate to the Logan County Sheriff's Office.
The Clerk of Courts and Family Court will operate out of the auditor's office in the annex building on South Madriver Street.
Judge Michael Brady will conduct hearings at Memorial Hall (adjacent to the courthouse).
Judge Douglas Chamberlain will work out of the hearing room of the Logan County JDC.
The Family Court probation officers will relocate to the JDC.
Phone numbers and hours of operation for each agency should remain unchanged.
Commissioner Bayliss said county officials are working with the Risk Sharing Authority to proceed.
Bayliss asked county residents to be patient during the move.
