The Letcher Circuit Court Clerk’s Office is extending its office hours one evening each week.
“We will be open until 6 p.m. every Thursday for the convenience of the working people of our county,” Circuit Clerk Mike Watts said.
Watts believes the extra two hours every Thursday will be popular with residents, especially those needing to renew their driver’s license. He said that five people visited during the new hours on September 5, the first time it was offered. He expects more people to take advantage of the service “when the word gets out.”
“It was great to have that many,” Watts said of last week’s visitors. “It will help the working people.”
