Mobile Office to visit Ferndale Public Library on Feb. 17th

The Oakland County Clerk's Mobile Office is heading to the Ferndale Public Library on Thursday, Feb. 17, announced Oakland County Clerk Bill Bullard Jr.

Anyone who lives in the area or surrounding communities is welcome. The Mobile Office will be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the library, 222 E. Nine Mile Rd. in Ferndale.

"Our office in Pontiac can be a long way for people, especially with gas prices today. We've put most of our services on our website, but we realize that there are people without Internet access or those who may be more comfortable with personal service. In an effort to reach out to all our communities, our Mobile Office pilot project will offer convenient one-day stops in each of the western, eastern, northern and southern portions of the county," said Clerk Bill Bullard Jr.

The Mobile Office is a no-frills operation. Employees set up shop in borrowed space with laptop computers and printers so they can provide customers with on-the-spot copies of birth certificates, death certificates or other public records. Normal copy fees apply. Citizens can access many services, including:

* Certified Copies of Birth, Death and Marriage Records.

* Marriage License Applications.

* Notary Public Applications.

* Registration of Assumed Names and Co-Partnerships.

* Military Discharge Forms.

* Passport Applications & Photos.

* Copies of Property Records and Deeds.

* Oakland County Circuit Court Records.

* Identity Protection Information.

* Voter Registration.

* Absentee Ballot Application. Forms.

* Concealed Pistol License.

"Anyone from the surrounding communities is welcome to join us to take advantage of this one-stop service," Bullard said, stressing that there is no additional expense associated with the Mobile Office because resources, including employees and computers, are simply being redeployed in regional locations.

"Our job is to get citizens the best possible service at the lowest possible cost, whether we are serving them at our main office in the Oakland County Courthouse in Pontiac."
