CEDAR RAPIDS — The Linn County Treasurer’s Office is closed in the afternoons until further notice due to staff being absent for COVID-19-related reasons.

The county announced the office closure in a news release Thursday.

During the afternoon closures, staff at the office will process transactions received through mail, the drop box and email and respond to calls, the release said.

The Treasurer’s Office will continue to host appointments throughout the week, from 7:45 to 11 a.m. The office also will honor current appointments already made, as staffing allows.

Appointments can be made online at the county’s website for services such as license plate exchanges, obtaining license plates/registration due to impound, pay non-sufficient funds/revoke, property tax redemption of taxes sold at a tax sale and title transfers, the release said.

Currently, appointments cannot be made for services such as vehicle registration renewals, property tax payments, claims for refund on vehicle registration, duplicate title and ordering specialty plates.

A drop box is available in the parking lot of the Public Service Center, 935 Second Ave, SW, for individuals to drop off payments, renewals or other paperwork, the release said.

Most other county offices continue to be open by appointment only.
