County Clerk Idoni’s staff processes 83 passport applications from mobile office
WHITE PLAINS, NY: On Saturday, March 10, 2012, a very proud Westchester County Clerk Timothy C. Idoni was on hand as his community outreach staff processed 83 passport applications, during Passport Day in the USA. “Westchester residents have obligations with work and family which make it difficult to visit us during our regular business hours,” shared County Clerk Idoni, whose White Plains office is the largest passport processing office in the region, having processed 4,360 passport applications last year. This event opens the season for the County Clerk’s mobile office, a small truck where residents can apply for a passport, including having their photo taken.
And if you haven’t applied for a passport already, County Clerk Idoni urges you to visit his mobile office when it next appears in your community. “Routine passport applications take only a few minutes and with increased attention on homeland security and terrorism, passports have become the primary identification document for those travelling outside of the United States by any means,” stated Idoni. Westchester residents interested in applying for a passport should be sure to learn what documents to bring to the mobile office. “If you are planning to visit our mobile office, please be sure to call our office at (914) 995-3086 or visit WestchesterClerk.com to learn what documents you need” advised Idoni. “And be sure to bring original documents with raised seals,” he continued.
Over the last five years, community outreach staffers have made over 200 appearances throughout Westchester County at municipal buildings, parks, colleges, libraries and senior centers.
The Office of the Westchester County Clerk is located at 110 Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in White Plains and is open from 8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday, excluding legal holidays.
