If you need to renew your tag or otherwise do business with the Bibb County Probate office, the annex can still take care of your needs even though County government buildings are now locked to prevent public walk-in access because of the COVID-19 crisis and social distancing needs. The building – which is scheduled to be torn down after the new building is finished – used to be a bank. As such, they have a drive-thru teller window.
Because of the construction underway for the new building, which will be behind where the current one sits, opening the drive-thru to cars as it once was is not possible. However, the teller window is now open for walk-up customers.
“The construction crew got the fence moved in a hurry,” County Administrator Derek Reeves said. Indeed, when asked to help they wasted no time getting the fence moved, walkway cleared, and even a shade canopy in place over the window.
Probate Judge Stephanie Kemmer said as far as functionality goes, the only thing they cannot do through the new walk-up window is renew a driver’s license. “But, if you haven’t done it before, you can do that online one time,” she added. If there’s something you need that you don’t see a way to get done, just call 205-926-3104 and someone in the office will be glad to help you figure out what to do.
