Power outage shuts down Madison County Criminal Justice Center

By Record News | Sep 15, 2017

The Madison County Criminal Justice Center lost power Friday, forcing officials to close the building, according to a press release issued by the county.

The courts facility at 509 Ramey St. in Edwardsville will be closed until repairs are made by Ameren, the release states.  

All dockets will be accommodated on the third floor of  the main courthouse at 155 N. Main St. 

Director of Facilities Management Rob Schmidt said the problem is from the electrical service coming into the building from the pole. He said Ameren crews were working to fix the problem. 

In July, the county shut down the Criminal Justice Center when an electrical breaker went out. 

“This is not a county issue, but rather a problem with the electric service provider,” Schmidt said. 

A Sheriff’s deputy will be located at the building to make sure people arriving for court will know the dockets are re-located.
