Jefferson County Clerk dowtown offices closed due to 'unforeseen circumstances'

The office is located on W. Jefferson St. which has been closed off in anticipation for a decision in the Breonna Taylor case.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. — The Jefferson County Clerk’s Downtown Offices will be temporarily closed, according to a release. 

The offices are closed due to "unforeseen circumstances beyond our control."

Their downtown offices are located at W. Jefferson Street and Court Place in downtown Louisville. The offices are across the street from Jefferson Square Park which has become the hub for justice for Breonna Taylor protests. 

That section of downtown is currently blocked off by LMPD in anticipation of a decision in the Breonna Taylor case. 

In addition to offices being closed, the county clerk's call center will be closed. 

The departments affected include the Downtown Motor Vehicle Branch, Dealer Department, Lien Department, Motor Vehicle Records, Deed Room and Professional License 

The listed departments have been temporarily relocated to the seven other branch locations across Jefferson Co. 

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services Louisville Field Office and Application Support Center will remain closed through  Sept. 30.

All interviews and appointments have been rescheduled. Officers will continue to perform mission-essential duties. Emergency situations will be handled on a case-by-case basis through the USCIS Contact Center at uscis.gov or 800-375-5283.

It is unclear at this time how long the downtown offices will be closed.
