Clerk and Recorder’s Offices Closed to the Public

Mesa County, Colo. – As a follow-up to an earlier Mesa County Press Release announcing limited access to their buildings and in-person services, to help reduce the rate of COVID-19 transmission; Mesa County Clerk & Recorder's Office is urging residents to use online services. Services by phone, email, or self-service kiosks are also available. Residents may also utilize the dropbox in the Central Services Building Lobby, Fruita and Clifton.

Although closed to the public, clerks will be working normal hours of operation from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (subject to change) staffing phone lines and email.
