IRONTON — City employees will return to work Thursday after a sewage leak, but the building will remain closed to the public.

Mayor Rich Blankenship said the building will remain closed for safety reasons due to the ongoing clean-up and construction on the first floor.

The municipal court will be open and employees will be directing traffic to the courtroom.

Residents who need to pay utility bills can still do so at the fire department from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
