The Edgartown courthouse reopened Tuesday morning after a broken boiler had forced a closure for two weeks.

Dukes County manager Martina Thornton said Fullin and Bettencourt Plumbing and Heating replaced the failed boiler, after it was determined to be beyond repair.

The county advisory board approved $50,000 in emergency funding to pay for the work. Ms. Thornton said the state will reimburse the county for 87 per cent of the cost.

The building is owned by the county and hosts the Edgartown district court, superior court, probate court and registry of deeds. While the building was closed, court proceedings were either postponed or held via video conference.

District court clerk-magistrate Liza Williamson said regular courthouse business had resumed Tuesday.
