Budget woes lead to circuit court closures, cut hours
Citing ongoing budget limitations, the Columbia County Circuit Court adopted an order to close the public service counter on Fridays.
Courtrooms will remain open most Fridays, though nine Fridays have been identified for furlough closures.
Hours for the public service counter have also been reduced. The counter will be open Monday-Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:45 p.m.
