In response to community spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Iowa, the Dickinson County Courthouse is asking that the public refrain from entering the Courthouse. We are asking citizens to utilize online methods for payment of things such as motor vehicle registrations and property taxes, and obtaining forms. Many of the forms citizens need can be found on the county’s website at

If your business cannot be conducted online, we would ask that you call in to see if the matter can be handled over the phone. Office phone numbers are:

Assessor: 336-2687
Auditor: 336-3356
Clerk of Court: 336-1138

Citizens may also mail payments and other items to the courthouse, or use the drop box outside the west entrance of the Courthouse.

Effective immediately, the Dickinson County Nature Center will be closed to the public until further notice.

The Courthouse remains open, and county business continues to be conducted. We ask our citizens to consider these alternate methods of doing business with the county for the health of the public and our employees.

There are no confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Dickinson County. We encourage everyone to remain calm and updates will be provided as needed on this evolving situation.
