County Clerk Extends Office Hours at Satellite Location in Hartford
Washington County Clerk, Ashley Reichert announced today extended evening hours for her office at the Hartford United Way Resource Center located at 1121 E. Sumner Street in Hartford. Beginning December 13th, the office will be open Thursdays from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. and offer passport services and marriage licenses during this time.

"We know and understand that it is at times difficult to come into our main office during normal business hours due to the inability to take off work or to pull children out of school," Reichert stated. "Being open late and offering more convenient times is responsive to our needs as a County, something that is important to me."

Improving service and the utilization of the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) satellite office in Hartford at 1121 E. Sumner Street is an intentional goal of Washington County this year. Given the large client population of our County that live in or near Hartford, and the need to "Collaboratively ensure the availability of treatment and preventative services for those with behavioral, emotional or dependency issues as well as their caregivers," the County is making a renewed effort to better leverage this facility and expand services.

"The addition of Clerk services was a no-brainer and we were lucky to have a County Clerk's office that responded so quickly for our call for services," added ADRC Director, Tammy Anderson who has been leading the satellite office charge for the County. "We'll be looking at rolling out other new services at this location in the next 6 months."

ADRC services are currently offered in Hartford 3 days per week--Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and by appointment Tuesdays and Fridays. So far, the renewed effort in extending ADRC services has proved successful as the demand continues to grow.
