County Clerk’s Office To Open

The Chautauqua County Clerk’s Office at the Mayville courthouse will open to the public for all services beginning Monday. “Chautauqua is an eFile and eRecord county so I am asking everyone to submit their documents in this manner where possible,” County Clerk Larry Barmore said. “We are still accepting mail-in recordings where appropriate. New York state is still prohibiting foreclosures and judgements to be started in our office. … The department has two employees out on voluntary furlough because of the county’s expected budget shortage so we may not be as fast as normal and we ask for your patience. There will be a release coming out later this week on the opening status of the DMV offices to in- person visits. When the offices do open to in-person visits it will be for driver’s license renewals and upgrades and driver’s license testing only. All other transactions will continue by drop box and mail only.”
