Kay County Clerk’s Office In PC To Close


A Ponca City office will close soon, but no jobs will be lost.

Kay County Court Clerk Marilee Thornton says her department will close the Ponca City Court Clerk’s office by June 30th.

Due to budget cutbacks over the years, the office was forced to move to an inadequate space, forcing most services to the main office in Newkirk on a regular basis. Budget money has plummeted over the years, from over $103,000 to just $53,000.

Fortunately, the two-person staff in the Ponca City location will not lose their positions. They will be relocated back to the Newkirk office.

Thornton believes this is the best move for the county as a whole. The last day of business will be June 23rd.
