The County Clerk’s Office will not open on Tuesday, January 15 until 12 noon while the city makes a water line repair at the intersection of Bryant and College Streets. However the County Clerk’s Office will be open extended hours on Saturday, January 12 from 7 a.m. until noon and Monday, January 14 from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.

Meanwhile the Assessor of Property, Register of Deeds, and County Trustee’s Offices will be open Tuesday, January 15 the regular time from 8 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.

City water customers from 412 to 725 College Street (College Street Bridge to the IMI Ready Mix company) will be impacted as well as water customers on Snow Street, Oak Street, Bright Hill Street, Bryant Street, and Walker Drive.

According to officials of the city public works department, an 8 inch valve and tapping sleeve are being replaced in a leaking water line at the intersection of Bryant and College Streets.

Work will begin Tuesday morning, January 15 at 6 a.m.

“The City Water Department says the time water will be restored is unknown for Tuesday and could be as late as 12 noon. Due to this situation no water means neither employees or the public will have access to restrooms or hand washing in our office. Therefore the health and safety of employees and the public are at risk forcing the closure of the County Clerk’s Office until noon on Tuesday. Although we will be closed for a short period on Tuesday, we are extending our Saturday hours from 7 a.m. until noon January 12 and on Monday, January 14 from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m.,” said County Clerk James L. (Jimmy) Poss.
