Clinton County Auditor Terry Habermehl announced Friday that his office will remain closed to the public until August 24.

“This will ensure that 14 days have passed since any staff members with symptoms or a positive test have been in the courthouse,” said Habermehl. “I feel this is the most prudent way to minimize risk and protect both the public and my staff,”

The office will reopen to the public — with access limited by appointment only — on Monday, August 24.

Habermehl reiterated that the auditor’s office will continue to serve the public by working remotely to maintain necessary business operations.

“I have an excellent team that is experienced, knowledgeable, and committed to doing everything we can to ensure that we continue providing outstanding service and ensure that vital processes continue to occur with the least possible amount of disruption,” he stated. “As a reminder, with very limited staff in the office, response times may be longer than normal.”

The auditor continues encouraging citizens to take advantage of electronic transactions capabilities such as purchasing dog licenses online at ; purchasing vendor’s licenses through the Ohio Business Gateway; and electronic filing for deed transfers.
