County Offices Open 5 Days A Week Starting June 1st
June 5, 2020
On May 1, the Governor lifted his Stay at Home Executive Order, allowing Williamson County government to move toward a phased reopening of its offices, while continuing to do our part to assist in the protection of the health and safety of our citizens and employees. We are now at a point where our County offices are open to the public five days a week, during business hours of 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. We continue to request that citizens schedule their visits to County offices by appointment, where possible, so that we can ensure appropriate social distancing and avoid crowds that will create a health risk to our citizens and employees. In addition, we ask citizens who can conduct business online, by phone or by mail to continue to do so.
Offices that deal with time sensitive filings, such as the County Trustee and Register of Deeds, have secured drop boxes placed at the west entrance of the County Administrative Complex. On each weekday, items placed in the dropbox prior to 4:30 will be stamped in as of that business day. Items placed after that time will be stamped in (or receipted, as applicable) as of the following business day.
Citizens visiting County buildings are currently subject to a no-touch temperature screening and a confirmation, based on a standard series of posted questions, that COVID symptoms are not present. Members of the public are encouraged to wear courtesy masks when conducting business in County facilities for their own safety and the safety of fellow citizens and our employees. Social distancing will be observed and all individuals are encouraged to use good hand hygiene.
This announcement does not apply to the buildings where judicial functions are conducted (including the courthouse, judicial center, and juvenile court) or to the jail, because special rules apply to the operations in those buildings by virtue of orders of the Tennessee Supreme Court and/or directives of the Judges of the 21st Judicial District issued pursuant to the Supreme Court Orders, and/or directives of the Williamson County Sheriff. Citizens who plan to visit those locations should reach out to those offices to ascertain any current requirements before visiting.
We thank our citizens for your patience as we continue to navigate this challenging time together.
Williamson County Mayor
