Story County buildings, except the Justice Center in Nevada, remain closed to the public as a precautionary measure to help slow the spread of COVID-19. In the Justice Center, only the Courts and the Clerk of Court’s Office are open to the public.


While our facilities may be closed to the public, staff continue to serve the needs of Story County residents.

Please call the phone numbers at the right, or click on the links to go to the Office and Department pages to send an email. We may be able to arrange an in-person appointment when essential functions cannot be provided any other way.
