The Cowlitz County Board of Commissioners distributed a news release on April 19th to alert the public that most County buildings will be closed on Wednesday, April 24, 2019. Because the Courts are legally mandated to be open on judicial days absent specific emergencies, the Superior and District Courts will be open for court business on Wednesday, April 24, 2019.
Because of limited staff levels, Court sessions will be adjusted as follows:
The Juvenile Court will be operating from 8:30 am until approximately 10:00 am – no court in the afternoon.
The Jail Courtroom will be operating as normal from 9:00 am until 3:00 pm.
All court proceedings for both District and Superior Court scheduled at the Hall of Justice will proceed as scheduled.
