An employee of the Riley County Treasurer’s office tested positive for COVID-19 over the weekend.
Treasurer Shilo Heger made the announcement at Monday’s Riley County Commission meeting. Due to this, six other employees are needing to quarantine as they were close contacts. Heger reminded the commission that her office has been using the proper protocols to keep the public safe.
Since the office will be short staffed, the remaining staff will be focused on motor vehicle transactions. Driver’s license services are being suspended starting Monday and will reopen on October 2nd, pending staffing issues. Licenses that expired between March 15th and September 15th will have until January 26th, 2021 to get renewed.
Heger also encouraged those who have tags expiring to use the online renewal services, mail it in, or use the drop box.
