Occupancy certificate for Justice Center expected this week

MOUND CITY – The Linn County Justice Center passed the fire alarm test on Tuesday, Aug. 2, after an exhaust fan was repaired. The fan was not working during an earlier inspection, and it caused a delay in the Kansas Fire Marshal's Office in issuing a certificate of occupancy.

The certificate is a necessary step before offices, courts and prisoners can be moved into the new facility.

In a telephone conversation with County Counselor Gary Thompson, he said that the results of the test had been sent to the state fire marshal, who had given verbal approval, and hopefully the certificate of occupancy would be received by the end of the week.

The only hold up for receiving the certificate the past two weeks was faulty exhaust fans that operate when there is a fire in the building. One fan was replaced and the other one was readjusted.
