The magistrate court for Wintersville is appealing to the village mayor and council to move inside the Municipal Building.

Magistrate Michael Bednar along with County Commissioner Tom Gentile made the case to council to approve a lease for the court to move. One reason is that the court located behind Zalenski’s restaurant isn’t actually in Wintersville. The other problem, officials say, is a lack of parking at the court.

Wintersville officials say they’ll meet soon to discuss the potential for a lease inside the building.
