If the matter is to be dealt with inside a courthouse office, the office holder or department head, will, with courthouse security personnel, provide escort into the office, Grow stated.

“The government of Phelps County asks the citizens of the County for their patience during this unsettled time. This decision will be reviewed and revised as needed,” Grow said.
