Clinton County Auditor Announces Changes to Office Hours

Clinton County Auditor Terry Habermehl announced today that his office will be closed January 24-25, 2022 due to illness.  “We have been advised that there have been positive cases of COVID-19 reported in the Auditor’s office.  Therefore, I am taking this action out of an abundance of caution to protect both the public and my staff,” stated Habermehl.  The office will tentatively reopen to the public on January 26, 2022.

During this time, Auditor staff will be working remotely to maintain necessary business operations.  “Please be aware that our staff is doing everything we can to ensure that processes continue to occur with the least possible amount of disruption.  However, there will be very limited staff in the office to check voice messages and mail, which will result in longer response times than normal,” he stressed.  Habermehl strongly encourages citizens to take advantage of electronic transaction capabilities such as purchasing dog licenses online at http://www.doglicenses.us/oh/clinton ; purchasing vendors licenses through the Ohio Business Gateway; and electronic filing for deed transfers.
