The Clerk’s Office is committed to providing a safe environment for the public and our employees. We have coordinated efforts with the County and the Court to do as much as possible at this time.
With coronavirus COVID-19 dominating the world news, please know that my focus is on your safety and the safety of my employees and the public. We plan for emergencies such as this, balancing safety with continuing to provide services to our community. Many of the services we provide in our offices are also available online. We encourage you to visit www.LeeClerk.org to learn how you can:
- Pay a traffic ticket online or by phone;
- Electronically record mortgages, deeds and other official records;
- File court documents electronically;
- Self-Help Center Legal Aid appointments have been suspended until further notice.
- Jury Duty – check our Jury Duty page for updates on jury service. At this time, our Chief Judge has stated that the public should continue to report for jury duty. As a reminder, seniors age 70 or older have options to be excused from jury duty. Check your jury duty summons for details.
As an organization, and as supply inventories permit, the Clerk’s Office provides hand sanitize on the jury counters, sanitizing wipes and masks. The public spaces are being cleaned and disinfected regularly by the building cleaning service with a CDC approved disinfecting leave-on spray. Information guidelines from the CDC are posted though-out the courthouse to “Cover your Cough” and “Cleaning to Prevent the Flu”.

Still scheduled, is the May 6 seminar at Lakes Regional Library and we will be reevaluating this as the situation continues to evolve. Check our Community Workshops web page for updates on seminar schedules.
