The hours for making changes to drivers’ licenses have been extended back to 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday at the Dodge County Government Center, 721 Main St. N, Mantorville. Ryan DeCook, Land Records Director, explained that there has been a decrease in the number of customers served daily and the average waiting time has gone down.
“Sometimes, there’s no wait at all,” he noted.
The office that services drivers’ license holders was closed in March because of the pandemic. Services have always been available online and beginning in May, they were available by appointment.
The office reopened with limited hours at the beginning of June, so there was time after the doors closed to take care of the customers in line at the time.
Now, the regular hours have been resumed.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, visitors should not enter a County facility if they have had any symptoms of COVID-19 in the last seven days OR if they have had close contact with someone who was diagnosed or suspected to have COVID-19 within the last 14 days. Additionally, per the governor’s executive order, everyone entering the building must wear an appropriate mask or other safeguard to cover the nose and mouth.
In the building, shields have been erected between employees and customers and social distance spacing is marked on the floors so those waiting in line can stay separated.
