County Clerk Idoni Announces Hours and Services Changes

URGENT: County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni announced today that due to the coronavirus pandemic his office will be making some major changes in service delivery in order to protect the general public and his staff from the dangers. Effective Tuesday, March 17th, he has reduced his staffing by fifty percent (50%) each day, while the normal 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. office hours have been reduced to 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Idoni said, “We will be providing almost all the regular services with a few exceptions, while lowering the amount of traffic in and out of the office, as per the Governor’s expectations during the emergency.”

Idoni asks the public to limit their submissions to the office to essential and time sensitive business if at all possible in the short term. Additionally, it is requested that most legal documents be e-filed (courts), e-recorded (land records), or submitted by mail.

In addition the issuance of passport and personal identification cards have been suspended due to their need to be done in person. Naturalization services have been postponed until at least mid-May.

Idoni also wishes to notify the public that while pistol licenses will continue to be processed, due to the closure of some of the courts in Westchester, the approval of some licenses may be delayed in the short term.

The clerk concluded by saying the office will continue to answer all telephone inquiries and e-mails during this time period. The office wishes to maintain most of its services while also insuring that personnel and the general public have been carefully protected.

Should one have any questions, please contact the Clerk’s office at (914) 995-3080.
