Memo from Marion County Clerk Myla Eldridge, March 24:

Governor Eric Holcomb and Mayor Joe Hogsett issued a series of stay at home orders for our state and city. In an effort to operate consistently with these orders, it is out of an abundance of caution that in-person payments will not be made in the Marion County Clerk’s Office during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Marion County Clerk’s Office will waive all service fees for bond payments paid online effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020.


Currently, online payments are the only way a bond can be paid. Multiple cards can be used to complete a transaction. Online bond payments can be done using VISA and Master Card. VISA and Master Card gift cards can also be used to pay bonds online. The Clerk’s Office has initiated discussions with multiple vendors to allow in-person cash payments at payment kiosks and certain grocery stores, as well as negotiations about service fees for in-person payments. It will take several months before in-person cash payments can be made outside the Clerk’s Office.


Thank you for your patience during the current public health emergency. Please visit the Marion County Clerk’s Office temporary closure page for information on how to access our services remotely. While these are trying times, we must all maintain the level of professionalism that I have seen over the last several years. I strive to do what is in the best interest of the public, whether it is regarding the Clerk’s Office or administering elections. My staff and I will continue to do our best to accommodate everyone and practice good government under the current health crisis. God bless you all.
