More than six years after it closed due to budget reasons, the Corona Courthouse will again be open for business.

The building on Buena Vista Avenue next to Corona City Hall is scheduled to reopen Monday, according to a statement released by the Superior Court of California, Riverside County.

The two-story building has been closed to the public since July 2012, except for one day a week to deal with traffic violations and other minor offenses. However, with extra funding and two judges provided by the state for the current fiscal year, the courthouse will again operate five days a week.

The building began as the Corona Municipal Courthouse in 1975 and became part of the Superior Court system 23 years later. It will provide self-help and collections services to assist litigants.

Limited civil, civil harassment, infractions, small claims, and eviction cases will be decided there, according to the statement.
