PAPILLION, Neb. (KMTV) — Starting on Monday, Sarpy County says it will resume full operations at its offices.

Previously, people were required to make appointments with the various offices but now walk-ins will be resumed. People are still encouraged to make appointments and use the mail to deliver forms and requests.

“We strongly recommend people continue to use our online services, or contact the departments by phone or email before coming to our offices. We can take care of most business that way, saving you time and a trip to the courthouse,” said Sarpy County Board Chairman Don Kelly.

If you're looking for passport services, those are still not available at this time but the county says it is working on it.

“To prevent the spread of COVID-19 and to protect our customers and workforce we are working with the State Department to determine the best time to begin issuing passport applications again. These applications contain personally identifiable information, so to protect our citizens’ privacy, we are waiting until the agency starts processing regular applications again. They are currently only processing emergency applications. We will immediately inform the public when we can again start accepting applications. We look forward to serving you,” said Deb Houghtaling, Sarpy County Clerk/Register of Deeds.

Health and safety measures will continue at the courthouse but wearing a mask is not required but it is encouraged.
