Updated Linn County Courthouse to open on Monday

Posted: Updated:
CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

UPDATE: The Linn County Courthouse in Cedar Rapids located on May's Island will reopen to the public on October 3.  During the recent flood, some water seepage happened in the sub-basement of the building.  Sump pumps were used to remove the water.

----------------------------------------

The Linn County Sheriff's Office remains evacuated due to projected flooding. 

An 8' wall of HESCO barriers has been placed around the building in an attempt to keep out flood waters. All items have been removed from the basement and lower level of the building. Plumbing fixtures have also been removed and plugged to prevent the intrusion of sanitary sewer water into the building. 

Non-essential services continues to cease operations until the flood even is over and the building is reoccupied. Essential operations have temporarily been relocated to the Marion Police Department. Call (319) 398-3911 for non-emergency patrol response.
