Another step forward has occurred in the gradual reopening of the community. The Geary County Office Building has reopened to the public.
Keith Ascher, County Commission Chairman, said the building will be open but with certain departments you may want to call ahead to learn about their mitigation plan. "For the most part, yes, the building will be open and you will be able to use the south door to enter. The hours are going to be from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. so that will be a little bit of a change."
For the Register of Deeds Office filing times of documents will go from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. with some exceptions. Even though the office is open, the door will be locked to limit the number of customers to four. Knock on the door and staff will assist you. Appointments are recommended.
For customers to enter the Treasurer's Office the hours will be 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. There may be someone at the entrance of the building to ask appropriate questions.
Once in the office there will be a maximum number of customers in the office that will not exceed 20 people and social distancing requirements will be complied with. Once the office has reached the maximum, customers will be directed to wait in the hallway. If the maximum is reached there, they will be directed to come back later.
