LEON COUNTY, Fla.(WTXL) — Leon County tax collector service centers have reopened to the public.
On Monday morning, a long line of more than 50 people gathered at the Lake Jackson office location.
The service centers have been closed due to COVID-19, and as a result services that required “the customer to be present” could not be provided.
Now that the centers have reopened, officials say priority will be given to services such as driver licenses and vehicle titling.
Customers are encouraged to continue to use drop box, mail in, or online options to renew registrations for motor vehicles, vessels or mobile homes or to pay property taxes.
Concealed weapon renewals only will be available at the Metropolitan Service Center.
Doris Maloy, a Leon County Tax Collector stated that, “The safety of our employees and the public is our primary concern; therefore, customers can expect to see some changes in the way we operate as we adjust to the reality of social/physical distancing."
Office staff say they will be available to answer questions and provide directional guidance as the following health and safety protocols will be in effect:
All service center employees will wear a face mask.
Only person(s) transacting business will be allowed in a service center.
Customers will be required to wear a face mask to enter and be served in a service center.
Customers will be required to maintain 6 ft. social distancing while in a service center.
Unfortunately, on the first day of reopening the system that handles titles and registration is down statewide.
Customers who have questions are urged to access the Leon County Tax Collector’s website atwww.leontaxcollector.net for additional information or call 850/606-4700.
