The County Clerk's Office is now open for all services except funeral homes Monday through Friday 10:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Service to funeral homes will continue by appointment until further notice.

If you plan to come into our office, please be advised that you will have to go through a short health-screening procedure which includes having your temperature taken and answering a few questions. You will be required to wear a mask or face-covering at all times. Due to limited space inside the Clerk’s office, it will be necessary for you to have all of your requests/applications completed before you are allowed inside the office, including having your identification documents and payment ready. Please keep in mind that our office closes at 4:30 and some services can take up to 20 minutes to perform. Please allow for this when coming in to our office.
