Two parking lots exist: beside the courthouse to the north next to the jail; and across the street.  Do not park in the parking lot across the street marked for the Braun Hotel as this parking lot is for hotel business only and vehicles may be towed.

You are reminded when entering the courthouse that you may be screened.  Additionally, it is illegal to bring knives or weapons into a courthouse.  To avoid delay, leave all pocketknives, multi-tool pliers, chemical and pepper spray, weapons, or unneeded items in your car.
