According to a news release posted on the Wood County Website, the Hawkins Justice of the Peace sub-courthouse will be undergoing a remodel due to flood damage beginning on May the 6th, lasting through approximately mid-June.

The Justice of the Peace office will continue to operate as they are able, but will need to fully close at times as construction necessitates.

The Auto Registration office located at the sub-courthouse will be closed beginning on this day until the remodel is completed. Vehicles can still be registered at the main office in Quitman, the sub-courthouse in Mineola, online, or by mail.
