CROWN POINT - The City of Crown Point’s Clerk Office is moving to Bulldog Park temporarily.

Bette Babjak, Chief Deputy for the Crown Point City Clerk Treasurer, says the office is moving due to renovations being made.

"Bascially due to COVID we've got 13-plus people in this space and the mayor and our clerk felt the need to do something to try to spread us out," Babjak said.

The move is a short-term arrangement and the office staff hopes to be back into its old space by March of 2021.
