The courthouse was set to open on a delayed schedule, but leaders agreed to close the facility for the entire day around 8 a.m.

The county’s schools and government decided on Tuesday evening to close for Wednesday and all Henry County Transit routes were suspended for today.

Henry County officials said the area received about an inch of snow, which led to icy conditions throughout. Henry DOT treated approximately 25 roads and helped to make sure streets were clear around hospitals and fire stations, county spokeswoman Melissa Robinson said.
