"Due to a major water line break resulting in loss of heat, the Glacier County Courthouse closed on Wednesday, Dec. 29, at 2 p.m.," announced the Glacier County Commissioners that same afternoon. The courthouse will remain closed until Monday, Jan. 3, 2022. County offices were  scheduled to be closed on Friday, Dec. 31, for the New Year's holiday.

The Commissioners stated the "Glacier County Courthouse will resume regular business hours on Jan. 3, 2022. County services will continue to be offered at the Glacier County Satellite office in Browning."

The Satellite Office phone number is 406-873-2389.

The Commissioners apologized for any inconvenience caused by the closure. Chairwoman Mary Jo Bremner sent out an email update to county employees and those residents who regularly receive emailed agendas with the following additional information:

"As you know, working on a hundred year old system has been arduous and to compound matters a water main broke. We have hired outside entities to fix the problems. The parts have to be shipped a great distance. We will notify everyone involved ASAP when the problems are solved."
