Some courthouse services resume Monday

Posted May 13, 2020 8:15 PM

HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Things are starting to open back up in the state legal system.

In Reno County, the 27th judicial district released how it will reopen the court system and it follows the orders of the state.

Starting Monday, remote proceedings will be used as practicable for any hearings.

In-person counter service will be open through the clerk’s office on the first floor of the courthouse in the former Register of Deeds Counter to give the public and employees more space. Two clerks will staff the desk and accept payments, pro se filings, marriage license applications and provide hearing times.

The probations office will be open only for intake and assessment of newly-assigned clients and UA’s. Probation clients will report by Zoom or by phone as directed by their officer.

The office says telework is preferred and social distancing and the use of masks will be enforced. If all goes as planned, in-person court proceedings could resume June 1.
