Carpet Replacement Will Cause Gap in Services at Jefferson County Clerk and Recording Office

MT. VERNON, IL — The Jefferson County Sheriff is having new flooring installed in the County Clerk & Recording Office and would like to alert the public of a gap in services this month.

The 30-year-old carpet will be replaced between Sept. 9th–20th. Because of this, Connie Simmons, the County Clerk & Recorder, has asked that anyone and everyone needing to do business with their office, please do so before the 9th or after the 20th if possible. All the records, shelves, desks, computers, etc. will have to be moved during this work, and only one terminal will be operational for both departments while the recording office will be in the basement.

The end date of Sept, 20th is tentative and if you have any questions you should direct them to 244-8020.
