I also want to add another important point that many people may be unaware of. Mostly everything that you can do at the courthouse, you can do online. I never have to go to the courthouse because I take advantage of those services. It's 2013 people.

Seriously? How often does the typical taxpayer go to the courthouse? Once...maybe twice a year...maybe!!! I, personally, haven't been to the courthouse in years. It seems the commissioners should get information from each department to find out how much traffic they actually have on Saturdays. If the courthouse were closed on Saturdays, people would adjust. Just like we will all adjust when the USPS stops delivering mail on Saturdays. Think how much money the county will SAVE the taxpayers by not opening on Saturday. I would think this is much more important than satisfying one attorney who needs to do some title work on the weekend. I say, manage your time during the week a little better!

I find it hilarious that the only comments are either against closing on Saturdays or indifferent. Surely you could have added more comments from people who are for closing...I know there are several. Marc Chernenko is a pompous ass who believes the world should revolve around him. From my understanding, he doesn't care about the taxpayers needs, like he wants people to believe,he wants the courthouse kept open for his personal convenience. Close the*****courthouse on Saturdays - is everyone going to revolt when the post office stops delivering mail on Saturdays? Commissioners of Brooke County - take back your courthouse!! And by the way, ask Sheriff Jackson how many people really come through - not a part time security guard.
