Greenville, South Carolina (WSPA) – The Greenville City Court has been closed for the past week due to water and sewage issues. It is set to remain closed for at least the rest of the week.
“We started picking up equipment and records and made sure we were cleaning everything to prevent further flooding, which was even worse,” said Operations Secretary Pam Larson. ..
She was in her office when the water and sewers began to fill the building.
“One of the young women started putting down their chairs, so I could walk something to get out of the office, so I didn’t actually have to walk in the water,” Larson said.
What was expected to be a few days of cleanup has been extended much longer.
“Each new issue resolved will either reveal additional damage or require more maintenance,” said city spokesman Beth Brotherton.
Currently, they are looking for ways to restore and execute services.
“They are in the process of transferring the work of many administration offices to the other side of the building where the court is located, but it now replaces the court,” Brotherton said.
The court has already confirmed the unprocessed proceedings due to Covid’s closure and will postpone it further in the future.
“There are quite a few cases, some of which now need to be rescheduled,” Brotherton said.
The current goal is to be creative and find other ways to get these cases through the system.
“We now recognize that we have a lot of work to do, and our top priority is to bring these cases to the judge,” Brotherton said.
“We learned that we only take it every day and see what happens,” Larson said.
The cause behind all this is the roots of the tree that grew through the pipes leading to the building.
