Submitted article

Clinton County Auditor Terry Habermehl announced that the deadline to purchase 2021 dog licenses without a penalty has been extended until March 31, 2021. Normally, dog owners would pay a penalty if they purchase their dog license after Jan. 31.

The auditor asked the Clinton County Commissioners to extend the deadline, and they approved the extension.

“I really appreciate the commissioners’ support to extend the deadline,” said Habermehl. As elected officials, we see and understand that the COVID-19 virus has caused difficulty and confusion in every area of our lives, including the ability to interact with county offices. The commissioners have worked diligently with all county offices and departments to provide the resources and support necessary to allow us to remain open to the public throughout this crisis.”

The licenses can be purchased by mail; online at the auditor’s website; in-person at the auditor’s office; or through any of the outside vendors who have partnered with the county to sell the licenses.
