Macomb County courts' phone, computer systems operational
County says courts will also remain open, anyone who has notice to appear should do so
The Macomb County Circuit and Probate courts' normal phone and computer systems are now operational, the circuit court announced Thursday.
The circuit court said the Macomb County courts will continue to remain open and anyone who has a notice to appear should do so.
On Thursday, the state of emergency declaration was lifted for the Old County Building in Mount Clemens.
"Due to the ingenuity and dedication of the entire bench and staff, the courts have remained open with minimal delays during the phone and computer systems outage," said Chief Judge John Foster. "Thanks to the judges' and staffs' hard work and patience over the past week, the Court has maintained operations and continued to serve the public at an exceptional level."
The circuit court says the temporary phone numbers distributed on April 22 are no longer in use. The previously listed court numbers should be utilized.
The Macomb County Community Mental Health loaned 33 iPhones to the Court, which assisted in keeping the courts up and running, said the circuit court.
