     District Court in Tabor City has been cancelled for today, Columbus County Clerk of Court Jess Hill said.

     Significant renovations to the Tabor City Courthouse, scheduled to be finished Thursday, remained incomplete this morning, Hill said.

     “Therefore due to the concerns in regards to the safety of all, court has been cancelled,” Hill said. “All cases have been continued to March 15, 2019 in Tabor City.

     Flooding twice in less than five months prompted town government to order the improvements, ripping up carpet, replacing that with flooring that will be easier to maintain and to restore if flooding hits the court building again, Town Manager Al Leonard said previously.
