County Passport Office Moves Back Into Courthouse Feb. 27

THE GUARDIAN plucked this piece off the Canyon County Website and hope it saves those seeking a new passport some time and effort.
"Effective February 27th, 2012, passport processing will move from the  
Elections Office to the Canyon County Courthouse.  Passport applications will be received and processed in the Recorders Office in Room 246.  Hours of operation will be 10:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.

In recent years the volume of passport applicants in Canyon County has risen dramatically. At the same time, the volume of work in the Elections Office has increased dramatically.  Election consolidation has more than doubled the number of elections conducted by this office.  Finally, the demands of redistricting and a presidential election make it impossible to continue passport processing in the Elections Office.

We greatly value our passport customers, but passport processing is provided as a convenience.  The remaining duties in the Clerk’s Office are constitutionally required.  Passport applications are available in the Recorder’s Office and can also be filled out on-line at www.travel.state.gov.    Passport agents will not be available until 10:00 a.m. and applicants must arrive by 4:30 p.m. to begin processing.  This change reduces the number of agents available...."



The phone number for the Passports Office is 208-454-7562.  Room 246 is on the second floor left side of the building.

A public discourse on the issues of the day makes the world a better place.

We welcome comments but they will be moderated and edited if too long or do not have anything to do with the post.
Agree or disagree just do it without profanity or it won't get posted. Try to keep your comments to no more than 300 words. Too long and I will try to edit it down or simply delete the comment. The whole idea is to get people to read your comment. Don't use 10 words when one will do the job.

It's OK to have a difference of opinion but keep it civil. I have used the "delete" feature on myself at times.

The ANONYMOUS feature for comments seems to be the most user friendly. People have commented they have difficulty with the other methods of posting comments.
