FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Calhoun County Offices Close
to Mitigate Spread of COVID-19

Calhoun County and Court offices and facilities, including the Justice Center, will be closed to the public starting Tuesday, March 17 in efforts to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). County government operations will continue with employees critical to providing essential services and functions. Government operations are scheduled to resume in full on Monday, April 13, subject to future evaluation of this rapidly evolving public health emergency.

This decision was made carefully following guidance from state and federal agencies, as well as advice from our County’s Public Health Department. Our number one mission is to provide responsive leadership in a way that focuses on the safety and health of our employees and the public. County and court employees will continue to receive pay and benefits throughout this public closure period.

The County partially activated its Emergency Operations Center on March 13 in order to ensure response coordination and access to additional resources if needed.

Information about how residents are able to interact with County departments is listed below.

Clerk and Register of Deeds:
The Clerk’s Office will continue to process paperwork through the mail and take calls during business hours.

Courts:
The Calhoun County Courts shall be closed except for the limited purpose of addressing emergency court operations, as outlined in administrative order, which may be conducted by video-conferencing whenever practicable. All court events not stated in the administrative order are suspended until Monday, April 13, 2020 and will be re-scheduled on a case-by-case basis.
Read the related Local Joint Administrative Order

Juvenile Home:
Operations will continue as normal at the Juvenile Home, however there will be no in-person visitation and no non-essential service providers. Residents will be allowed phone calls during normal visitation time and contact with attorneys, probation officers, and other court personnel should be by phone. No person displaying symptoms such as cough, fever, or shortness of breath will be allowed to enter the Juvenile Home.

Property maintenance will continue, as well as maintaining property sales as much as possible. Demolition of the Union Steel property in Albion will continue, as well as a handful of residential demolition projects. Staff is available by phone and email.

Names Embroidered on Quilt

 

 

Sonoma Home Worker’s Society Quilt

This quilt was a prize for a fundraising raffle in 1915 by the Sonoma Home Worker’s Society.

What makes this quilt unusual is that each of its twenty golden sunbursts, have over 300 hand embroidered names stitched on the rays and centers of the sunbursts.  With the purchase of each ten cent raffle ticket, a name was stitched on a petal.  There is no record of how long it took to sell the tickets or the amount of time it took to complete the project.

Lon and Lou Ann Grover donated the quilt to the Battle Creek Historical Society.  Lon’s grandmother and great grandmother, Fern M. Quick and Myrtle Quick, were two of the quilt’s embroiderers and their names appear stitched on the quilt. When the drawing was held for the quilt, Lon Grover’s grandfather, Howard Grover, was the winner.  

The Historical Society has graciously loaned this quilt to Leroy Township for display.


Burn permits are required in Leroy Township and available here or in our Office lobby
