Public elevator at Regional Law and Justice Center down for repairs

The public elevator at the Chelan County Regional Law and Justice Center is out of service while a contractor makes repairs and updates to it. The elevator is not expected to be available to the public again until approximately the first week of June.

Anyone needing to access either the law and justice building or the Chelan County Courthouse should enter via the Law and Justice Building entrances on Washington Street or at the east parking lot (by the Wenatchee Public Library). There is no direct public entrance to the county courthouse because of an ongoing construction project that is renovating the open breezeway between the two buildings into one enclosed entryway.

People who need ADA accommodations are asked to speak to a security officer at one of the entrances.  Security officers will be escorting people in need of an elevator to reach the courts, the Clerk’s Office or the courthouse to the elevator in the courthouse.

The elevator project started April 10. In September, the county also started construction on the new, secure vestibule that will connect the two buildings. That project is not expected to be completed until sometime in May.

When completed, the new vestibule will be 492 square feet and mostly made of glass. It will include updated security features, including a station for campus security, automated access controls for the two buildings, updated metal detectors and lockers for visitors who need to store valuables or firearms.
