COVID-19

The Wayne County Treasurer’s office is currently limiting access to the public for the safety of all residents and staff. We still have alternative options to conduct business such as online services, mail, and the drop box on the North side of the building. Driver’s exams will not be given until further notice. Please refer the Governor’s executive order regarding a waiver for expiring registrations, new vehicle purchases, and driver’s licenses. 

All the online services are accessible at these two websites:
