Crawford County Circuit Court to Receive Over $112,000 Technology Grant for Upgrades

The Second Judicial Circuit is proud to announce that Crawford County Circuit Court has been awarded a Technology Modernization Grant for the third consecutive year.  The grant program, funded by the Illinois Supreme Court and the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts, was offered to county court systems in the State for technology upgrades to modernize the delivery of court services.

Crawford County Resident Judge Christopher Weber and Circuit Clerk Angie Reinoehl sought funding this year and were awarded $112,768.09.  The grant will fund new computers for the courtrooms and the Circuit Clerk’s Office, new software, and other technology including the development of a new Circuit Clerk’s Office mobile app that will improve the flow of information to court participants.

Second Circuit Chief Judge Melissa Morgan expressed gratitude for this year’s award stating, “I commend Resident Judge Weber and Circuit Clerk Reinoehl for their work on this technology grant. This year’s award of $112,768.09 brings the total amount they have received over these three years to $276,065.32.  My staff and I have enjoyed working with them and we are extremely grateful to the Supreme Court and the Administrative Office of the Illinois Courts for this generous grant and the opportunity to make necessary upgrades without having to pass the costs on to the people of Crawford County.”

The Second Judicial Circuit is comprised of twelve counties: Crawford, Edwards, Franklin, Gallatin, Hamilton, Hardin, Jefferson, Lawrence, Richland, Wabash, Wayne, and White.
