 “With the predicted record low temperatures, the acting Chief Judge and I have agreed it is wise to close the county buildings on Wednesday to ensure the safety of our employees and our residents” Walsh said. “And we strongly encourage everyone to stay home tomorrow unless it is absolutely necessary.

"The office closings will not affect our around-the-clock operations such as Sunny Hill Nursing Home or the Adult Detention Facility."

Per the Acting Chief Judge, cases that are scheduled to be heard on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 and the morning of Thursday, January 31, 2019 will be heard at 1:00 p.m. in their respective courtrooms.

"The office closings will not affect our around-the-clock operations.  24/7 Agencies such as the Will County Sheriff’s Department, Laraway Communications Center 9-1-1 Dispatch, detention facilities, Sunny Hill Nursing Home, the Will County Coroner, and other functions deemed essential will remain fully staffed".
