Update, Jan. 9, 2:50 p.m.: Highland Park's City Hall and courthouse building remained closed for a second day Thursday. Court cases resumed at a different location — the Ernest T. Ford Recreation Center, on 10 Pitkin St.
A spokeswoman for the city did not immediately respond when asked how long the closure would last and what the issue is.
Original post, Jan. 8, 4:30 p.m.:
Highland Park officials are hoping to reopen city hall and 30th District Court Thursday after the municipal headquarters was closed abruptly due to undisclosed "building problems."
A media release from Mayor Hubert Yopp Wednesday morning said the Woodward Avenue building was unusable for government functions.
City spokesperson Marli Blackman said she's unaware of what the issue is.
The city posted rescheduled court dates on the front door.
