Area Clerk of Court Offices Back to Full Time

Des Moines, IA (KICD) — Four northwest Iowa Clerk of Court Offices are back to full time.

3rd District Court Administrator Leesa McNeil tells KICD News as of Monday Emmet, Palo Alto, Pocahontas, and Kossuth County are back to full time. She says this is welcome news for the offices that have had cutback hours for some time.

McNeil says that having the offices open full time is especially beneficial to those dealing with certain situations.

The four counties returned to full time as of Monday, July 15th. They are part of 21 counties statewide returning to full time status. While the area counties are all back at full time status, some across the state aren’t quite yet. The judicial branch says the Clerk of Courts in all 99 counties and the clerk of appellate court will be at full time status by September 3rd.
