Power failure forces temporary closure of Madison County Criminal Justice Center
A power outage Sept, 15 forced the temporary closure of the Madison County Criminal Justice Center in Edwardsville, according to a press release.
Rob Schmidt, county director of facilities management, said the problem was with electrical services coming into the building from power lines and Ameren crews would be working to restore power to the building.
“This is not a county issue, but rather a problem with the electric service provider,” Schmidt said, according to the release.
While the facility being closed until repairs are made, all dockets were relocated to the third floor of the main courthouse at 155 N. Main St. The sheriff’s office posted a deputy at the center to direct people to the temporary location.
