The Wright County Recorder’s Office is going to be
providing services as the county phases in opening its public counters starting Wednesday, May 27.
Wherever possible, the office will strive to retain as little contact as
possible to adhere to social distancing and safety measures currently in place.
The department is taking phone appointments for
several of the services it provides. For real estate recordings, residents are
encouraged to call (763) 682-7360. The number to call for vital records, birth
certificates, death certificates and marriage certificates is (763) 682-7942.
The number to call for the issuance of marriage licenses and the filing of
credentials is (763) 682-7355.
One area the Recorder’s Office is unable to fulfill requests
deals with the issuance of passports. That service has been suspended by
federal restrictions beyond the control of local jurisdictions.
“The Recorder’s Office provides essential services to
the citizens of Wright County and has maintained operations providing services
throughout these unprecedented times,” Wright County Recorder Tanya West said. “We
are here to serve the public and we will continue to provide customer service
while maintaining social distancing and safety guidelines. We understand the
importance of protecting the health and well-being of the public and our
employees, so we will continue to offer no-contact services electronically, mail
through the U.S. Postal Service, via drop box or fax.”
For those with questions about a specific service,
they are asked to call the Recorder’s Office at (763) 682-7357.
