UPDATE: The Marshall County Courthouse is closed through May 1. It would open up the following Monday, which would be May 4.
The courthouse is closed to the public, but employees can still work. This is subject to change, and commissioners discussed how they could call another meeting.
The sheriff asked for hazard duty pay at $200 a month for his deputies. The county’s lawyer is going to go over that with the personnel board. The commission is taking it into consideration, and it could be discussed at the next meeting.
The Marshall County Commission is holding an emergency meeting Monday morning to discuss how new coronavirus orders and legislation will affect local business.
The two big points of discussion will be whether or not to open the courthouse and how federal legislation will affect their employees.
They're also discussing the Families First Coronavirus Response Act. The act gives employees who have been employed for at least 30 days up to 12 weeks of paid sick leave if they have to take off because of the coronavirus.
