In general, things are moving fairly slowly regarding county business, with Gov. Laura Kelly’s executive stay-at-home order requiring the Allen County courthouse to remain closed.

As commissioners want to abide by the governor’s orders, the closure will last, at absolute minimum, until April 19.

County employees are still hard at work, however, and residents can make appointments with appropriate county offices, as long as they pertain to essential business.
