Courthouse to reopen Wednesday


The Bossier Parish Courthouse in Benton will be open for business Wednesday at its regular 8 a.m. opening time after emergency repairs were completed to a natural gas line.

Crews completed temporary repairs Tuesday evening shortly after 8 p.m. to bring water heaters and boilers in the courthouse back on line. Jim Firth, who directed the operation for the Bossier Parish Police Jury, said permanent repairs would begin Wednesday.

An emergency declaration closed the courthouse Tuesday afternoon when the natural gas leak was discovered.
