County: Clerk-Recorder's Office to stay open late on Thursdays

Offering three extra hours each week until the end of August

The Contra Costa County Clerk-Recorder's Office extended summer hours program returns this Thursday (July 11) and will run every Thursday through Aug. 29. The Clerk-Recorder office, located at 555 Escobar Street in Martinez, will be open from 8 a.m. - 7:30 p.m.

This is the fifth year that the Clerk-Recorder has offered this special program, serving over 1,000 customers after hours since 2015.

“We’re looking forward to providing this unique program again. Residents, especially those who work during the day, have enjoyed the opportunity to get the services they need at a time that’s more convenient for them,” Contra Costa Clerk-Recorder Joe Canciamilla said.

“It’s nice to be able to offer our services for an extended time, especially for busy parents as they get ready for the upcoming school year,” Canciamilla continued.

Summer is an especially important time for parents to obtain birth certificates for school and for those seeking travel documents. It is also a popular season for weddings.

Services provided during the extended hours include the issuance of marriage licenses, copies of birth and death certificates, copies of recorded documents and other professional filings. Marriage ceremonies will be available by appointment and walk-ins will be accommodated, if possible.

Document costs are available on the Clerk-Recorder website. For more information or to make a ceremony appointment, call 335-7900 or visit the website.
