Cook Co. closing suburban bond courts on weekends

December 29, 2011 (CHICAGO)

It would mean closing bond court on the weekends at five suburban courthouses in the coming months and creating a single weekend bond court at the courthouse at 26th and California.

Five suburban courthouses now hold bond hearings on Saturdays: Skokie, Rolling Meadows, Maywood, Bridgeview and Markham.

The process will begin January 7 at the Bridgeview courthouse, and the rest of the courthouses will begin closing their weekend bond courts over the next two to three months.
