COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - Crews are hard at work inside the Columbus Government Center to get the building back in service after it was flooded.

Earlier this week, thousands of gallons of water poured into the tower from a water main break. Beginning Monday, officials say floors one through eight will reopen for employees and the public.

The top three floors of the building still need work and that's where most court business is handled.

An assessor is expected at the government center on Thursday to determine the extent of the cost and damages.

The Muscogee County Sheriff's Office is operating out of a mobile command unit until Monday. Those scheduled for state court arraignments should enter the building via the East Wing of the Government Center on 2nd Avenue.
