Adams County Elected Officials Announce Modified Procedures During COVID-19 Pandemic

In an effort to successfully reopen our doors and safely serve the public in-person once again, the County Clerk’s office will proceed as follows:


Timber Cutting Permits: We strongly recommend you continue submitting your cutting permits to us in the same manner as we have had in practice over the past few months, via email countyclerkdept@co.adams.wi.us or fax 608-339-4514.

Marriage License Applications: All applications will be processed at the front counter window. We ask that you make an appointment with us ahead of time, to ensure that someone is available to process your application when you arrive. Please click on the Marriage Information link to obtain a more detailed information sheet listing all required items to bring with you for your appointment. Please note that we only accept cash or credit card (use fees apply).


Please call or email with any questions you may have.
