Circuit Clerk Offices Open on Wednesdays
By Alabama News Network


Circuit clerks offices across Alabama are now open again to the public on Wednesdays.

In Elmore county, the circuit clerk's office had been closed on Wednesdays for a year.

That was so workers could get caught up on a backlog of cases due to a smaller staff.

Chief justice Roy Moore says the backlog has eased, and the offices can be open to the public 5 days a week.

Moore says he will continue to ask the legislature for additional funding to hire more employees.
