The Middlesboro branch office of the Bell County Court Clerk office has reopened, according to Clerk Rob Lincks.
The office had been closed by the previous clerk, Becky Blevins.
“The reopening will provide convenience and better service to the residents of Middlesboro,” said Lincks in a press release.
