Before then, preparations will need to be made in several county offices. Plexiglass panels will likely be installed at the service counters of the county assessor, clerk and treasurer, and some procedural changes may be made in other offices.
Rod Nelson, courthouse maintenance man, discussed the preparations and cost of materials with the commissioners on Monday.
County officials also discussed how they would like to see the panels installed to provide the right size of opening at the bottom.
Commissioners then inspected the locations for the plexiglass barriers.
The courthouse outer doors have been locked since March, and citizens must call to be admitted to the building.
