Passport Express in Greece Moves to Thursdays
Tue, Aug 30 2011
Rochester – Monroe County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo announced today that Passport Express currently scheduled each week on Wednesdays at the Greece Town Hall will now be held every Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at this location. Passport Express at the Pittsford Town Hall will continue on Wednesdays. This will give customers more options to obtain a Passport during the week. County Clerk’s Office staff will continue to provide the entire range of Passport services at the two locations, including photos and expedited applications, without the need for an appointment.
County Clerk Cheryl Dinolfo said, "Our customers will now have more options to submit Passport applications during the week – at our downtown office throughout the week and on the last Saturday of the month, in Pittsford on Wednesdays and in Greece on Thursdays. Passport Express builds upon my commitment to make getting a Passport even more convenient for the public and furthers my Renew Monroe! program.”
Clerk Dinolfo’s Renew Monroe! program encourages Monroe County residents to process their passport and DMV transactions locally, to keep their money working here. The fees are set by the federal government and are the same regardless of where an individual applies. By processing applications with the County Clerk’s Office, that money helps keep local taxes as low as possible and supports numerous vital County programs.
Customers now have several options to obtain a Passport from the County Clerk’s Office (no appointment necessary), including:
· The County Clerk’s Office Downtown, 39 W. Main St., Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
· Passport Express, Wednesdays (Pittsford Town Hall) and Thursdays (Greece Town Hall). 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
· Passport Saturdays, last Saturday of the month, 39 W. Main St., 10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
· Passport Outreach throughout the community at area schools, businesses, town halls and libraries (check the County Clerk’s website for details)
Clerk Dinolfo added, “I’m proud that we are continuing to ensure that taxpayers can obtain a Passport as easily as possible. However, I’m still eager to partner with more local businesses, schools and other organizations to expand access to these needed services. As always, any interested business or school district can call my office at 753-1645 to inquire about bringing passport services to their location.”
