It is my understanding that the courthouse is to be built were the parking lot is and they might keep the old one for offices. I don't know what they will use for parking spaces.This is what I heard through the grapevine.I guess we will wait and see.

they cannot construct a new one in parking lot and maintain court going in old one at same time.logisticially it is virtually impossible to do.i heard new one going in down by jonesboro school,also new jail going to be squeezed in as part of new courthouse,but wont be called jail,will be called courthouse security facility.

What? We dont want the couthouse by the school, too congested down there.

Went to the courthouse yesterday, I forgot that I had my cell phone on me, I also had Sammy (4months with me), I just had to pay a fine, to make a long story short, He (the front desk man) was going to fine me with contempt of court if I wouldnt bring my cell back to the car, It was a cold rainin mess, just had to pay a fine a the circuit clerk, well guess what.....im not paying the fine. Just had to get that off my chest. What happened to the days of people being nice, its slowly slipping away here is southern Illinois.

The Courthouse should be right on the square. The building that the health depsrtment is in needs to be torn down. I have a friend that bought the corner office space to try to open a restaraunt and she couldnt get insurance because od the roof, wiring, it just need to go. What about there??? I agree the courthouse needs a revamp. I know someone who is in a wheelchair, the jusge comes downstairs to hear her case because they always schedule her upstairs.

fyi,a judge is the ONLY one who can hold you in contempt of court,and it can only be done in a legal proceeding.the only thing that guy in the front can do is arrest you,thats it.
