Macomb County Courts’ Phone, Computer Systems Back

MT. CLEMENS (WWJ) — The Macomb County Circuit and Probate courts’ normal phone and computer systems are operational, County Executive Mark A. Hackel’s office announced Thursday afternoon.

The Macomb County courts continue to remain open and anyone who has a notice to appear should do so.

The temporary phone numbers distributed on April 22 are no longer in use; the previously listed court numbers should be utilized. Thanks again to Macomb County Community Mental Health for loaning 33 iPhones to the Court, which assisted in keeping the courts up and running.

A fire April 17 in the old county building knocked out phone and data service to the county’s offices.

“Due to the ingenuity and dedication of the entire bench and staff, the courts have remained open with minimal delays during the phone and computer systems outage,” said Chief Judge John Foster. “Thanks to the judges’ and staffs’ hard work and patience over the past week, the Court has maintained operations and continued to serve the public at an exceptional level.”
