St. Charles Parish Courthouse closing to the public

St. Charles Parish President Matthew Jewell signed an executive order today to limit and restrict access to the courthouse and all government buildings to by appointment only effective Monday March 23, 2020 until further notice.

Residents needing to conduct business with the courthouse or other government buildings must call ahead of time to make an appointment.

Additionally, many offices have made adjustments to handle business over the phone.

“Residents across St. Charles Parish rely on us for critical services such as clean water, sewerage, trash pick-up and drainage and we will continue to provide those services through this event,” said Jewell. “I care about our employees and their safety deeply, which is why we are moving to this new work plan as we aim to sustain normalcy for our employees and our residents.”

While all services provided by St. Charles Parish will continue without interruption, current closures and cancellations remain in effect.

Cancellations include all recreation activities, all public and private events at the Edward A. Dufrense Community Center and all senior citizen events.

Meeting cancellations include all Council meetings, Coastal Zone Advisory Board meetings and Planning Board of Commissioners meetings.

Closures include The Registrar of Voters Office, Killona Community Center, St. Rose Community Center, Boutte Community Outreach Program, all branches of the parish libraries and all schools.
