PALATKA, Fla. -- The Putnam County Courthouse in Palatka will reopen on Monday.

The Volusia County Courthouse Annex at City Island in Daytona Beach will reopen then as well.

Traffic Court proceedings, which had been held at 250 North Beach St. in Daytona Beach, will be held in alternate locations because that facility remains closed.  A schedule for upcoming traffic court proceedings will be determined.

All other courthouse locations in the 7th Judicial Circuit, which includes Flagler, Putnam, St. Johns and Volusia counties, have already reopened in the wake of Hurricane Irma a week ago.

"During this emergency, all court deadlines will be extended and all scheduled court hearings will be rescheduled when court resumes," Ludmilla Lelis, court communications officer for the 7th Judicial Circuit of Florida, told Headline Surfer.

"Updates on schedules for our judges will be posted on their own web page, as information becomes available.
