Online Public Services Becoming A Priority For Washtenaw County

Jun 29, 2020

The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners says virtual, or online public services, will become a bigger priority for the county because of COVID-19.  

The county continues to encourage residents to use online services as much as possible to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.   Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners Chair Jason Morgan says the board would consider allocating additional funding in the future to continue offering new services, such as virtual district court hearings, so residents don’t have to make in-person court appearances.  

Board Chair Morgan: Such as traffic citations and paying fines can be paid online. 

Morgan says that while the county is encouraging residents to do business online, they will continue to offer in-person services for those who don’t have access to a computer or just simply prefer to receive assistance in person.
