Four county offices are slated to be closed Thursday and Friday while the elected officials and staff switch offices.

Justices of the Peace Yvonne King and Ronny Glossup and Constables Roger “Tex” Maynard and Larry Argenbright were busy Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday, compartmentalizing their office equipment into boxes to be moved with help from county jail inmates Thursday and Friday to their new digs at 128 Jefferson St., located inside the main section of the old Fidelity Express property purchased by the county and recently remodeled. Both constables are also packing to ready for the move Thursday and Friday.

Consequently, the offices of Precinct 1 Justice of the Peace Yvonne King, Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Ronny Glossup, Precinct 1 Constable Roger “Tex” Maynard and Precinct 2 Justice of the Peace Larry Argenbright will be closed Thursday and Friday, June 25-26. All four will reopen Monday, June 29, at the new location

To find their offices, enter the main building entrance and turn right. The constables offices should be the first office as you head down the hall and the JPs are just beyond that.

Hopkins County Attorney Dusty Hyde Rabe’s office will be closed for business most of next week. They will shut down July 1-2 for the move to the new facility, while all county employees (expect on-duty sheriff’s and fire personnel) are off work July 3 for the July 4 holiday. The county attorney’s office will reopen Monday, July 6.

Tax Assessor Collector Debbie Pogue Jenkins’ office is scheduled to be closed Thursday and Friday, July 16-17, for the move to the remodeled building. The office currently plans to reopen at the Jefferson Street facility on Monday, July 20. That office will be located just to the left of the constables and JPs, in the same building as County Clerk Debbie Shirley’s office which made the move a few months back.

Also already settling into their new “home” in the old drive-through location, Suite A, which actually faces College Street, are the veterans services, environmental quality and game warden’s offices.

Staff at each moving office asks that everyone please try to be patient with each office during the transition. For more information about the relocation of various offices, contact the specific departments.
