Edmonson Voice Report:
Edmonson County Clerk Kevin M. Alexander announced that the Edmonson County Clerk's Office will be closed the entire upcoming week, September 13-18, due to multiple Covid-19 positives in the office and staff exposures.
"The health and safety of our staff, along with the public we serve, will always be a priority" said Clerk Alexander. "This is not something we can help. Our crew enjoys being open and waiting on our citizens. We're going to have to allow everyone to get better and clear quarantine for right now. Fortunately, it's the middle of the month and a bit slower time in our office."
The upcoming delinquent tax sale of unpaid property taxes, set for this upcoming Tuesday, September 14th at 11:00 am, will also have to be rescheduled to a later date this month.
"Unfortunate timing regarding this as well. I will be contacting the state to get another date as soon as possible" said the clerk.
Clerk Alexander said he is remains optimistic that things can again return to some sort of sense of normalcy.
"We've only been closed two days due to Covid up to this point" Clerk Alexander noted, but "this last year and a half have been tough on everyone. Our staff loves waiting on our people. That's really what this office gets to do that most of the others do not. With Covid, it's been such a difficult thing for our community, our state, and our entire country. I hope and pray things get better soon for everyone."
Any questions related to the office may be sent via email to Kevin. Alexander@ky.gov. The clerk says he will be checking his email numerous times daily from home,
