MASON, Mich. (WILX) - Ingham County Clerk Barb Byrum (D-Onondaga) announced the temporary closure of her Mason Historical Courthouse Office effective immediately until further notice

Update: Ingham County Clerk’s office in Mason to reopen Monday

“My office was undergoing planned renovations when it was discovered that there was asbestos tiles under the carpet that was to be replaced,” Byrum said. “This unforeseen discovery must be remediated for the safety of my staff and those that visit my office, and so we will be relocating the staff and closing the Mason Office to the public.”

The Clerk’s Mason Office staff will continue to operate, completing their normal functions via mail, fax, email, by phones. The Lansing Branch Office remains open to the public for any in-person transactions needed.

“It is imperative that we continue to remain open, as my office provides vital services to the public, and we will do just that,” said Byrum. “In addition, this closure will not impact my office’s ability to oversee and execute a safe and secure election this November.”

The Lansing Branch Office is open to the public from Monday – Friday, from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and is closed from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. for lunch each day. The Lansing Branch Office is located in the Veteran’s Memorial Courthouse at 313 W. Kalamazoo St., Lansing, MI 48933.

“It is my hope that this temporary closure is resolved quickly and will allow the Mason Office to open again soon,” said Byrum. “I appreciate the public’s patience as we work through this unexpected delay.”
