Trigg Clerk’s Office Closing To Public Beginning Wednesday

The Trigg County Clerk’s office will close to the public beginning Wednesday and remain closed until further notice.

Trigg County Clerk Carmen Finley reports core staff will continue to support mail, online transactions, and drop-offs from the dropbox on the side of the building.  She adds the reason for the closure comes from Governor Andy Beshear’s decision to begin closing non-essential services. She adds they regret the closure, however, feel it’s in the best interest of our community and staff.
