DRIVE-THROUGH WINDOW RE-OPENED

DRIVE-THROUGH WINDOW RE-OPENED

After more than a year, the drive-through window has been closed at the Hardin County Tax Assessor-Collector’s Office. On Aug. 10, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held to celebrate the re-opening of the drive-through window. Tax Assessor-Collector Shirley Cook noted the drive through was closed for about 40 years because of storm damage. She said her office opened the window for 10 weeks while the courthouse was shutdown last year because of COVID-19. Cook said the drive-through has been completely repaired and will open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday. PHOTO BY DANNIE OLIVEAUX
