Birth, Death, & Marriage

Wait Times

Please know we are working to keep wait times to a minimum as your time is very valuable to us. We would like to assist you with managing your time by keeping you informed of our busy times so that you may schedule your visit accordingly.

Our busiest days of the week are Mondays and Fridays, particularly the afternoons. 
The first and last weeks of the month are always very hectic due to motor vehicle registration renewals. 
Our quietest times are Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday mornings as well as most Thursday evenings after 5:30.

Please know that these are guidelines only. We could be busy at any time and things often change quickly. 

Thank you for your patience.
