The Richland County Courthouse was closed Wednesday, but re-opened Thursday. The closing was due to flooding caused by a waterline break on Diamond Street. The waterline that feeds the building's sprinkler system broke sometime before 4 am, at which time 9-1-1 dispatchers called Buildings and Grounds Superintendent Chuck Minich to report eighteen inches of water had flooded the commissioners' parking lot and swept into the two lower levels floors. Water covers the floors and ceiling tiles are down, but Minich says there is no structural damage. The courthouse is closed because the sprinkler system is down, and there are other public safety issues. He hopes to have the sprinkler system back on, and the rest of the damage repaired, to have the courthouse re-opened Thursday. People wanting to get their 2014 dog licenses before Friday's deadline, will be given one extra day, through Monday. In the meantime, you can renew your licenses at the county dog pound on Home Road near the fairgrounds, or you can mail in your fee if it's postmarked before Monday's date. The Mock Trial this Friday, involving numerous area high schools, is still on.
