LAWRENCE COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Portions of the Lawrence County Courthouse could remain closed for the rest of the month, according to the County Commission.
Starting on Monday, the Commission decided to open the third floor and block public access to the first two floors. The third floor houses the district attorney's office, board of registrars and one of two circuit clerk offices.
For now, county residents can pay fines and can cast absentee ballots.
Several county residents who went to the courthouse Monday were upset they will have to wait on renewing licenses, car tags, and hold off on addressing property issues.
"I'm not to much worried about the tag violation, but I would still like to be within the law. So I hope the repair work is completed soon," said Lawrence County resident Gregory Miller.
The Lawrence County Courthouse is asking all county residents to be patient while some departments are closed for repair work.
