WILLIAMSON COUNTY, TX — To help mitigate the ongoing spread of the coronavirus, a WilCo justice of the peace will be offering curbside service for residents to take care of business starting next week, officials announced on Saturday.

The Williamson County Justice of the Peace Court Precinct 3 office has been working on innovative ways to offer its services to the public amid the COVID-19 pandemic, officials explained in an emailed advisory. To help reduce the spread of the virus while also taking into consideration the safety and health of residents and county employees, JP3 will begin to offer curbside services starting on Tuesday, June 9, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. at 100 Wilco Way, Georgetown, Texas, officials added.

"People feel compelled to come to court to take care of business, so we want to extend a safe avenue for those who aren't ready to come inside by offering curbside service,” Williamson County Justice of the Peace Judge Evelyn McLean said in a prepared statement.

To that end, residents will be able to drive up and make a credit or debit card payment without having to come into the building, according to the advisory. In addition to making payments, residents also can drop off paperwork, such as driver's safety paperwork and community service hours, officials added.

Officials added they will continue to offer curbside services based on the public response. For more information visit https://www.wilco.org/jp3.
