Broken Pipes close Gladwin Co. Courthouse
The Gladwin County courthouse is out of commission for the time being, after pipes burst on the top floor of the building. Gravity took over from there and water damage to the lower floors of the building in Gladwin is reported to be extensive. Building coordinator Rick Ghent says damage could run between 250 and 500 thousand dollars. He says the courthouse will be closed on Monday and until further notice, while the damage is assessed and repaired.
