The public hours for Toledo Municipal Court will be cut by two hours to help save money, Presiding Judge Tim Kuhlman said yesterday.
The court s new hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., effective June 2. The current hours are 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The Finkbeiner administration earlier this month said it would cut costs at the municipal court by using part-time security next year rather than full-time Lucas County sheriff s deputies.
That plan was not implemented this year after months of debate among the court s judges, City Council, and the mayor s office.
The judges will continue to oppose that change, Judge Kuhlman said.
There are currently 23 deputies and that number will be reduced by one, effective June 2, Judge Kuhlman said.
