Niagara County Clerk Joseph A. Jastrzemski, who had shut down several of his office's services because of the Covid-19 outbreak, announced plans to close the clerk's office to the public completely as of 4:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Previously, Jastrzemski had closed the motor vehicle offices in Lockport, Niagara Falls and North Tonawanda; the pistol permit and passport offices in the County Courthouse; Veterans Services; and the County Historian's Office.
But he had allowed title search companies, several of which rent space from the county, to continue working in his office, while allowing attorneys to drop off real estate documents.
Documents may still be recorded, but only through electronic filing or by mail. Courier service will not be allowed.
