Due to the ongoing concerns regarding COVID-19 (Coronavirus), the Williamson County District Clerk’s office has implemented a few changes effective immediately. It is our hope and plan to remain open to continue to serve the citizens of Williamson County; however, the health of the employees and their families is certainly a priority of mine. It is my goal to eliminate as much public contact and traffic in and out of our office as possible. Therefore, I am asking each of you to comply with the following temporary guidelines:
Emergency matters requiring in-person service will require an appointment. This policy is effective until the expiration of termination of the Texas Supreme Court’s emergency order unless otherwise indicated by the district clerk’s office.
