We are now open to the general public and have resumed our normal hours of 8 am to 4:30 pm, we take rotating lunches so that we can help you during lunch hours. We strongly encourage everyone that has transactions that can be handled through the mail to do so! This will really help to keep the Motor Vehicle office and hallway compliant with social distancing and will help to keep employees & patrons healthy, safe & feeling secure in their surroundings! Thank you!

Main, Room 107 Ottawa, KS 66067-2335, or place it in the County's Stainless Steel drop box located on the front lawn of the Historic Courthouse. The placard will then be mailed to you, or you may bring the application to the office and be given the placard at that time, at no fee.
