Rock County Clerk's office relocates across the hall
The office still is on the second floor but now is in the north hall across from the Rock County Employees Credit Union.
County Clerk Lori Stottler said the move consolidates the payroll and accounting divisions in the county clerk’s old office, and the clerk’s office moved into the old accounting office.
Stottler said the payroll and accounting departments often work together, so it makes sense for them to be in the same office.
“It was a strategic and financially wise decision,” Stottler said.
Payroll used to be part of the county clerk’s office but was switched to the finance department in 2008.
The clerk’s office began the move in mid-May and finished June 11.
The clerk’s office issues marriage licenses, hunting and fishing licenses, work permits and passports. It also has tourism and trail information available.
The office is planning an open house for 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Monday, July 11.
