Judge Kenneth Weeks of Newton County has been very busy in the month of May. On Wednesday, May 22, 2019, Newton County celebrated the grand opening of our new sub-courthouse in Deweyville. Local residents are invited to go see the community’s newly constructed building. The facility has space for the Tax Assessor/Collector office, Justice of the Peace Precinct 4, Dana Ashmore, Commissioner of Precinct 4, Wesley Thompson, Sheriff’s Department, Newton County Library and an office for DPS/Game Warden. Judge Weeks plans to have Probate Court in Deweyville one day a month and his plans are to try to hold Commissioner’s Court meetings in Deweyville a couple of times a year.
