As promised, the Edmonson County Clerk's Office will begin Saturday operating hours beginning May 9th, 2015 at 8:00am. From that time forward, the office will be open each Saturday from 8am until 12 noon. With the addition of Saturday operation, the office will change it's Thursday operating hours from all day to 8am until 12 noon. The rest of the week's scheduling will remain the same, which is: Mon-Weds 8am to 4pm, and on Fridays, 8am until 5pm.
"This is something we wanted to do from the very beginning, but a few unforeseen circumstances came up that didn't allow us to reopen until this scheduled date," said Kevin Alexander, Edmonson County Clerk. "We have a completely new staff that has worked hard to get up to speed on Kentucky's vehicular computer system along with everything else required to make the office run smoothly. It's been an interesting three and a half months, but we're getting there."
According to Alexander, employees from the Grayson County Clerk's Office, including Clerk Sherry Weedman, have traveled to the Brownsville office to help and train the EC Staff daily over the past three months.
He also noted that the Commonwealth of KY's Division of Motor Vehicle Licensing has implemented a new decal system, called PODD (Print On Demand Decals) that gives the customer registration stickers and receipts with a new look. "We're one of the first counties in south central KY to get these," he said. "The receipts and decals look different than what we're accustomed to seeing, but they work just the same."
Clerk Alexander also wanted to mention that individuals who are poll workers will have training on Wednesday, April 22nd at 5pm.
The Clerk's office will also be closed on Thursday, May 7th for required election training in Bowling Green.
"My staff and I want to thank everyone for their patience with us during this transition," Alexander said. "We said we were going to reopen on Saturdays, and we're glad to be able to finally do it. We feel that this will certainly help all those people who have trouble getting to the office during the Mon-Fri workweek."
