The Marion County Clerk’s Office takes very seriously its obligation to protect its employees and the general public in this time of great peril. We have all been told to stay home. We have been told to treat every person as if he or she is a carrier. Marion County is now a designated “hot spot” for the Coronavirus with at least thirty confirmed cases and most likely more to come. It is the duty of every citizen to act in a responsible manner to avoid further spread of this deadly illness. For those reasons, the Marion County Clerk’s office will remain closed to the general public until further notice. No access to any part of the clerk’s office, including the record room, will be granted to anyone other than employees.
We will continue to provide service to the public in ways designed to insure the safety of all. Staff members are available during normal work hours of 8:30 to 4:30 to assist the public with questions and document retrieval. Contact with the office may be made by telephone (304-367-5440 or 304-367-5452) or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will promptly respond to all inquiries.
The Debtor/Creditor indices are accessible on the Clerk’s website at marioncountywv.com.
Beginning next week, we will have a two secure dropboxes near the Adams Street and Jefferson Street entrances to the courthouse for depositing documents to be recorded. Staff will collect the contents of the box periodically through the day and insure that all properly drafted and executed documents are timely recorded. You may call the office beforehand to determine the proper filing fee for any document. If we have any questions, we will call you, so please leave a telephone number where we can call you when you drop documents in the box.
We are also working diligently to have available records online for public access. Although that is a time consuming and technical process, we are moving as expeditiously as possible.
We know this is not an ideal situation. It is stressful and frustrating, but this pandemic has disrupted all our lives and will continue to do so until the danger is in the past. We ask for your support in our efforts to be good citizens and good stewards of the public trust in these unprecedented times.
Deputy County Clerk
