Air conditioning problems shut down Coast government complex
Published: May 28,2014
PASCAGOULA — Three Jackson County government buildings will be closed until at least tomorrow while workers repair air conditioning systems.
About 100 workers were sent home yesterday.
The shutdown affects the county courthouse, the courts building and the county services complex.
County administrator Brian Fulton says a backup “chiller” went out Sunday while the main chiller was being repaired.
Fulton says portable units and fans didn’t help against the heat.
Officials say the county does plan to reopen tomorrow; however, it will depend on the circumstances and whether the repairs are completed.
Fulton says some of the services, including tax collection and planning department services, can be handled at the Highway 609 facilities in West Jackson County. There will be no court today for the Jackson County circuit and chancery courts.
