The court wall
August 2, 2018
About two weeks ago, the lower paneling on the back of the court house building peeled away from the wall and crashed to the ground. A barrier had been put up around the area to ensure public safety after staff was notified that the panel was beginning to crack on July 9. The building's owner, Jesse Olson, sent a crew on Thursday from his company, Alaska Professional Construction, Inc., to pull the remaining paneling down, clean up the area and provide a temporary fix, said clerk of court Rachel Newport. Olson plans to replace the paneling by the end of the summer, said Newport.
