Seasonal Town Clerk hours

As with every year, the Town Clerk office hours on Saturdays will close starting April 7th for the very slow season and then re-open for the busier 2 months of August and September. They will then close and re-open January, February and March for the next busy season... As with all the Town Clerk Office hours, this seasonal cycle is driven by computer documentation.

Regular Hours are 9 - 1 Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday; 2 - 6 Thursday. Appointments as needed.

See you during Hunting Season sales!

Meth Lab makers are now using a new system for "cooking" their drugs... if you see a pile of hoses and soda bottles in a ditch or open area, DO NOT TOUCH but call 911 immediately. This may be an "Overnight Meth Lab". Meth lab creators have been utilizing this process to cook their drugs without running the risk of explosions in a house or garage, and to continue to avoid discovery. They are currently operating within Lindley town lines so please be careful if you are collecting garbage along the road/creekside. Remember, this is an unstable drug making process and should not be moved. Call 911 immediately.
The Lindley Town Clerk will be returning to off-season hours after Tax Season, starting April 7th, 2012. This means that Saturday office hours will be closed starting April 7th, until the return of Hunting Season during August and September. Regular office hours remain the same as usual - Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday from 9am-1pm and Thursday from 2pm-6pm. As always, appointments can also be made as needed.
