As we re-open there will be a few changes to ensure the safety and welfare of our employees and the public. Here are a few of the changes:

  • Only three entrances will be open:

            1.         West-Brooks Street 1st Floor (New Addition)

            2.         West-Brooks Street 2nd Floor (New Addition)

            3.         East – South Main Street 3rd Floor (New Addition – District Court & Historic Courthouse Offices)

  • Limited number of customers will be allowed into each office in order to maintain social distancing.
  • Social Distancing will be required while waiting to enter offices. Lines will be designated for County Clerk, Treasurer, Assessor and Elections’ Offices with 6 foot spacing.

We encourage the public to continue utilizing the County drop box, mail, email, phone, or on-line services to conduct business whenever possible.

The NEW County Drop Box is located at the corner of Brooks and Burkitt Streets, on the courthouse side of the street. This is a safe and secure way to deliver documents to the County Courthouse.

NOTE: Place your documents in a sealed envelope & address to the appropriate office. This will ensure the documents are delivered to the correct office in a timely manner.
