Monroe County Treasurer, Peggy VandenBerg would like to inform the public that the treasurer's office will be closed this week.
“Unfortunately, we have had a positive Covid 19 exposure in the office. I have been in communication with Monroe County Public Health Nurse, Kim Hugen and it has been determined that this is the safest course of action, since my office is so small and social distancing is very difficult.
I realize the property tax deadline is next week, however, this will have no impact on that deadline. Property owners may pay their taxes via mail, online or use the dropbox on the west side of the courthouse. Motor vehicle registrations may also be made in the same manner. All the vehicle titles and driver's license transactions will need to wait until we reopen.
All payments made via mail, online and dropbox will be processed in a timely manner as other departments within the building, are helping me at this time. I can't thank them enough for their extra effort and help.
I sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause, however, for the safety of all staff in the Treasurer's Office and the safety of our community this is the safest option.
As of today I plan to have the office back open next week, Sept. 28 for title transfers and driver's license transactions. This is subject to change based on health guidelines.
I am strongly encouraging all property tax payments and motor vehicle renewals be paid through the mail, online or in the dropbox on the west side of the building.
It is imperative that we keep traffic to a minimum in order to keep everyone safe.
I thank you for your patience and your understanding and I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.”
