Court Running Again Following Mold Damage

The Union Gap Municipal Court is back open Monday after closing almost three weeks ago because of toxic black mold at city hall.

Judge Bob Northcott says they're 500-600 cases behind.

During the morning session Monday, they saw about 60 people come through municipal court. On average they see only about 50 for the whole day.

The judge even postponed the lunch break to make sure they got through all the cases from the morning.

The move cost the city about $60,000 in construction costs, but Northcott says the Yakima County Fire District 11 building on Washington Avenue is working out great.

"We've had some police officers in today, just to see how things were working. Everybody feels like it's a very efficient operation," said Judge Northcott.

He says it will probably take them a few months to completely catch up.

As far as the ongoing mold problem and what's going to happen to city hall, Mayor Jim Lemon said that the council will discuss another option to buy Yakima County's Restitution Center in Union Gap.
