BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Jefferson County plans to reopen satellite courthouses in Gardendale and Forestdale next month.
Interim Finance Director Travis Hulsey told The Birmingham News reports the two locations will reopen "in a somewhat limited basis
until the county's financial condition stabilizes."
The reopenings are set for Dec. 14.
Those locations and two others in Homewood and Center Point closed in August when the county placed about 1,000 of its 3,600 workers on unpaid leave.
Workers in Homewood and Center Point were called to reopen the satellite courthouses last month.
Hulsey said the Gardendale and Forestdale courthouses will handle driver's license renewals, title applications, tag renewals, business licenses and most public services.
