The Jackson County Commissioners have decided to keep county offices closed to the public through the end of May.
That decision came during a commissioners meeting Tuesday at the courthouse in Brownstown.
Commissioners discussed the potential of reopening the offices to the public; however, they ultimately decided against it due to safety concerns.
“Until such a time that our health officials and the state offer some further guidance, we are maintaining status quo,” commissioners President Matt Reedy said. “This does not mean we are closed to the public, but rather we are by appointment-only for the protection of the public and county employees.”
Anyone who needs to visit the courthouse can do so by making an appointment over the phone or through email; however, commissioners are asking that anyone who can take care of their needs online to do so at jacksoncounty.in.gov.
Property tax payments may be made through the mail, the drop box at the back entrance of the courthouse or online at www.jackson-tax.net.
