HAWKINS COUNTY, Tenn. - The Hawkins County Health Department is hoping to re-open soon after flooding forced a month-long closure.
Hawkins County Mayor Melville Bailey tells us on March 5, a plumbing issue caused the building to flood, damaging several offices on the first floor.
We're told the repairs are covered by insurance, but improvements will cost as much as $25,000.
The department hopes it will reopen on May 5.
