Montmorency Co. limits access to courthouse & sheriff’s office


Montmorency County has continued to monitor the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

As we continue to adjust to the situation at hand, our employees and our county residents are our primary concern.

While most of Montmorency County remains healthy, we must be proactive and attempt to limit the potential strain on local health care providers and hospitals. There is no reason for panic, but caution and preventative measures are wise at this time.

Following many other counties, and using caution as our guiding point, the Montmorency County Courthouse, will be by appointment only beginning Thursday, November 19th, 2020, and ending December 8th, 2020.

This action is to comply with the recent Michigan DHHS epidemic order dated 11/18/2020. During this time frame, Montmorency County employees will continue to report to work as scheduled.  Montmorency County residents are encouraged to utilize phone, email, postal mail, or fax options to conduct County business. Where services cannot be accomplished via these options, services may be allowed by a one-on-one appointment at the discretion of the department head. Please review the specific options to each County department below, either within or outside our courthouse walls.
