Until further notice, the Plymouth County Courthouse and Annex Building will be closed to the public for entrance into the building beginning at noon on Thursday, March 19th, 2020.


Many of the county government services can be conducted with Plymouth County online.  For a full list of services available to you online please visit:   County Department email addresses are also available on the county website.


If residents are unable to complete county business online, please contact any of the County Offices via telephone and staff will be happy to assist. Please use the mail system to send payments and documents if at all possible.  There is a drop box in the north lower vestibule of the Courthouse that is available. The north lower vestibule will be open from 8 am to 5 pm for access to the secure drop box and monitored by security at all times.


If, as a last resort, residents need to conduct essential county business in person at the Plymouth County Courthouse or Annex building, please call or email the respective department, and arrangements for an appointment may possibly be made.


Although, closing the courthouse to the public is an unprecedented decision, all residents must work together as a whole community to protect those most vulnerable to this outbreak and take all precautions possible to slow the spread in our communities.  Thank you for making these necessary accommodations.

Due to the concerns of COVID-19 the Assessor’s office will be doing informal protests of 2020 assessed values over the phone as all Courthouse offices remain closed to the public.  Informal protest appeals will be accepted from April 2 through April 25.   You may also do a formal protest to the Board of Review from April 2 through April 30.  As of now, the Board of Review will meet on May 1 to begin hearing formal protests.  That date is subject to change depending on information we may receive from the Department of Revenue.  We will email, fax, or mail out an Informal Protest Form or Board of Review Protest Form.  You may also obtain each form by going to the Assessor Webpage (Click Here)

The Plymouth County Driver’s License station will be closed until further notice in an effort to slow the spread of Covid19.  The IDPH and CDC have identified public spaces and group gatherings as potential transmission points for Covid19.  Plymouth County Treasurer Shelly Sitzmann, and the Plymouth County Board of Supervisors believe that the safety of all Plymouth County residents as well as County staff should be first priority.  Therefore, Plymouth County’s Driver’s License station will be closed.  We apologize for the inconvenience.
