Plans are now in the works to reopen the Town of Alexandria Court office, which has been closed almost a month.
The shutdown came when then-court clerk Jamie Sanchez was abruptly fired by the town board.
Town Justice Todd Gorman says he held court Tuesday evening, the first time court was held since Sanchez was dismissed.
Gorman said the court office will open with limited hours on July 19.
He says a clerk has been hired and a second position is being filled. Both new hires must undergo training.
It's still unclear as to why Sanchez was dismissed or if the firing went through proper channels.
Sanchez would not comment and referred all questions to her attorney.
