Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, new procedures are being put in place to safeguard the health of all county residents.  Effective at noon today, March 19, 2020, the doors of the Brown County Courthouse will be closed and locked.  The individual offices in the courthouse will remain open and will conduct business on an as-needed basis.

Anyone with business that cannot be taken care of either by phone, mail or e-mail should contact the individual office responsible by phone and make arrangements or an appointment to come to the courthouse.  Personnel will be screened at the entrance before being allowed into the courthouse.

These procedures will remain in place until further notice.
