Courthouse Notes Holiday Hours and Services

All offices will resume regular business hours on Tuesday, Dec. 26.

Christmas Tree Safety

As you deck the halls this holiday season, be fire smart. A small fire that spreads to a Christmas tree can grow large very quickly.

  • Choose trees with fresh, green needles that do not fall off when touched
  • Before playing the tree in the stand cut 2″ from the base of the trunk
  • Make sure the tree is at least three feed away from any heat source (fireplaces, radiators, candles, heat vents, or lights)
  • Make sure the tree is not blocking an exit
  • Be sure to add water daily to the tree stand
