 Weakley County Circuit, General Sessions Office open to public, but court proceedings rescheduled

After announcing that the Weakley County Circuit and General Sessions Office would be closed to the public, officials have decided to leave the office open, but encourage people to wear a mask and socially distance themselves while in the office.

Circuit Court Clerk Jenny Killebrew says residents can still use the black drop box at the south side of the Weakley County Courthouse for filings, citations, payments, and other court-related documents, and those dropping anything in the box should call the office to notify the staff.

Killebrew says payments can always be made online at courtfeepay.com, over the phone, or by mail.

The Tennessee Supreme Court has also suspended in-person court proceedings through January 29th.

With the in-person court suspension, court dates have had to be rescheduled.
