IF THE MEETING IS AT THE COURTHOUSE: To find the Courtroom, climb the steps and enter on the east side of building, across from the Administrative building. Once on the second floor, walk down the hall and turn to the left, and then ascend the steps to the third floor. At the top of the third-floor steps, turn right and enter courtroom on the east side of building. For those who do not wish to climb steps: Enter courthouse basement on the north side of building. Walk in, make a right turn in hall, and another right turn to elevator. Go up elevator to the 3rd floor. Once off elevator, turn right, and go down the hall, turning right again. The meeting will be in courtroom to the left before the steps.

If you can’t get the north door open to enter the building, or need help finding your way in, call 573-576-0451 and Drew will come find you.
