The new satellite office for the Meade County Sheriff’s Office is located at the fairgrounds in the emergency services command building.
On Dec. 14, the Meade County Sheriff’s Office opened a satellite office at the Meade County Fairgrounds in the emergency services command building. This has been done in an effort to protect the citizens amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Sheriff Phillip Wimpee.
At the satellite location, citizens will be able to pay property taxes, conduct business pertaining to CCDW permits, as well as have vehicle inspections performed.
Property tax collection for the December 2020 amounts will be extended until the close of business on Jan. 6 for in-person payments. Mailed payments must have clear, legible post mark on or before Dec. 31.
“Our focus at the Meade County Sheriff’s Office is the safety and well-being of all of our citizens, families and guests,” Wimpee said. “By opening this satellite office, we will be better able to serve our customers while providing even more room for social distancing.”
Wimpee says that, though the pandemic has added complications to operating procedures, he plans to continue to do all he can to keep people safe for as long as he’s sheriff.
“I will continue to be the sheriff for as long as this county needs and wants me to be, no matter what difficulties arise,” said Wimpee.
The Meade County Sheriff’s Office will continue staying open until 6 p.m. on Thursdays at the satellite office only until normal operations are resumed. The hours of operation will be from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursdays with the exception of holidays. Both Meade County Sheriff’s Office locations will be closed on Dec. 24, Dec. 25, Dec. 31 and Jan. 1.
