"It has not been put together yet, but we are making some steps toward that," said Stephenson County Presiding Judge Theresa Ursin of the plan requirement.
said a planning document of this sort could be very useful in a number of situations.
In February 2008, the local courthouse had to close one day because of snowfall, and Ursin
spent several hours on the phone calling various courthouse personnel.
A plan with contact information and specific provisions for closing the courthouse due to weather would have been very helpful, Ursin
"Obviously, the weather incident was a more small scale problem, but it just goes to show we need to have planning about these problems," Ursin
