Computer upgrade to close court clerk’s office Thursday
Salesha Wilken Staff Reporter
Rogers County District Court Clerk Kim Henry will close her office Thursday by court order due to computer issues.
The state court network will be replacing servers, temporarily shutting down the computer systems, according to First Deputy Jennifer Book.
All courts will be open and operating as normal; however, a district judge will be providing an order extending any filing deadlines to Friday, she said.
The office will reopen at 8 a.m. Friday and the temporary closure will allow the system to be upgraded.
The old server is unable to take on all the added functionality that has been implemented since January, according to Henry.
“I have been working to bring this office into the 21st century to provide better service to the public and court system,” Henry said.
The office started scanning all documents on May 7, added new payment options and other communication devices, including fax capabilities all integrated with the Oklahoma Supreme Court Network, she added.
“My priority is to offer the public more accessibility and transparency as permitted by Oklahoma State Statute,” Henry said.
The closure will not impact the public’s ability to go online at www.oscn.net to view records, she added.
Office staff will be working on Thursday to complete the implementation of the new filing system, according to Henry.
Emergency protective orders will be available for filing Thursday by contacting the Protective Order Office at (918) 923-4962.
