After a successful test of the tornado sirens and radio frequencies Wednesday the Muskingum County Sheriff’s Office continues to prepare for their re-location.
Sheriff Matt Lutz said the downtown office will be closed to the public Thursday the 12th through Monday the 16th as administration work to complete the moving process.
"Anybody that is coming to the station to report something should still do the same process they’ve been doing by stopping downtown at the jail lobby, and going in and telling them that they need to speak to a deputy, and that can be done clear up until Tuesday morning," said Lutz.
The Sheriff’s office will officially re-open at their new location in the Muskingum County East Complex on the East Pike on Tuesday the 17th.
"One of our big concerns is I’m not sure when they’re going to install their signs out front," said Lutz. "One of our big concerns is we don’t want people stopping here on the East Pike to report something until we’re here."
Sheriff Lutz reassures the 9-1-1 Dispatch Center will not experience and type of disruption during the moving process.
A Public Open House will take place at the new location, 1840 East Pike, on Friday the 20th and Sunday the 22nd from 1 until 4 o’clock.
