LOGAN — The Hocking County Courthouse will reopen to the public starting Monday morning.

The reopening was proposed by Hocking County Commission President Jeff Dickerson during Thursday morning’s meeting. Beginning Monday, Feb. 22, the courthouse, at 1 E. Main St., will return to its regular schedule and resume normal business.

However, offices within the courthouse may choose to operate by appointment-only, Commissioner Sandra Ogle said.

“The public should be aware (that) each office has the authority to operate the way they see,” Ogle said.

The board also read a resignation announcement from Hocking County Emergency Management Agency Director Cesalie Gustafson, effective March 12.

“It has been a pleasure helping the residents of Hocking County through multiple disasters and being part of an amazing team of first responders,” Gustafson wrote in her announcement, which Ogle read aloud. “This county, when it comes to its first responders and how they work together, is nothing short of awe-inspiring.”

The opening for the position will be posted on Jobs & Family Services and applications are due by March 1, the board said.

The board also interviewed two more candidates for the open position on the Hocking County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and heard sewer updates from Gary Silcott Jr. of the firm Stantec.

The board of commissioners will meet again next Tuesday, Feb. 23 at 9:30 a.m. The meeting will be streamed on its Facebook page, www.facebook.com/hockingcommissioners and will also be open to the public in-person with a room capacity of 14, including guests.
