Although Judge Servaas has been prominent in the fight to keep the court in Rockford, the entire staff and the services the court provides to the northern district of the 63rd District Court will be a loss to the community. The personal and conveniently located court house closing marks a historic day. We thank the court and staff for the good work provided for so many for so long.
