Custer County Treasurer’s Office COVID-19 Service Options Updates & Reminders

Amid concerns in the State of Nebraska and Custer County about COVID-19, the Custer County Courthouse has been closed indefinitely to public foot traffic since Thursday, March 19, 2020.  It was planned to review the situation on April 18, 2020 and determine whether to open at that time. The Governor has now issued a Directed Health Measure through May 11, 2020 limiting the number of people at a gathering to ten.

At this time, the Custer County Courthouse and County Treasurer’s Office will not reopen to public foot traffic until the Governor’s Directed Health Measure through May 11, 2020 has been lifted in Custer County.

The Custer County Driver’s License Examiner’s Office will also be closed through May 11, 2020.

The Governor’s Executive Order, dated March 19, 2020, remains in effect allowing constituents with expired driver’s licenses, ID cards, titling requirements, registrations and in transit tags an extension to complete those items until 30 days after the Executive Order has been lifted.  No time frame has been released as to when this will be lifted.

During this closure a crucial deadline will occur with the first half real estate, personal and state assessed property tax being delinquent Friday, May 1, 2020.  Constituents will not have access to the Courthouse to pay in person. Payments can be made through mail, phone, online or at our drop box outside the west side of the Courthouse. Mail must be postmarked on or before Thursday, April 30, 2020 to avoid interest charges. Please plan in advance to avoid late charges.
