Single point of entry at courthouse starts Monday

In yet another sign of the changing times, the Elk County Courthouse in downtown Ridgway will transition to a single point of entry starting Monday morning.The only available entrance to the building will be the back door of the courthouse-- in front of the Elk County Prison-- as all other doors to the facility will be locked.In revealing their 2014 budget proposal Nov. 25, 2013, which also featured a one-mill tax increase (the first since 2009), the commissioners reported that the Associated Office of Pennsylvania Courts [AOPC] recommended a single point of entry at the courthouse.
