The list of closures was a long one Monday because of the snow, from schools to businesses to government agencies.
Not on that list was the City of Lima's municipal building, a call made by Lima Mayor David Berger.
The Lima Municipal court was closed as was the Allen County Courthouse, and a number of other county agencies, but Berger believes it is critical they open their doors.
Berger says his policy has been consistent over the years.
He will open the city building on a snowy day like Monday. Whether the employees make it in to the office is their decision.
The city building has closed recently because of severe weather.
The building lost power during the late June thunderstorms of 2012 and some work time was missed.
