Calcasieu Clerk’s Office to start accepting passport applications Oct. 29

CALCASIEU PARISH, LA (KPLC) -

Starting Monday, Oct. 29, the Calcasieu Parish Clerk of Court will accept passport applications, according to a Thursday news release from Calcasieu Parish Clerk of Court Lynn Jones.

Jones said the passport applications will be accepted on behalf of the U.S. Department of State.

"U.S. citizens planning international travel may apply for their passports Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Clerk of Court Office located at 1000 Ryan Street, Lake Charles (the parish courthouse)," the release states.

Jones said that due to the closure of the passport application site at the main post office in Lake Charles, his office was contacted by the U.S. Department of State, requesting to fill the gap.

"We felt that we needed to step up to the plate for the citizens of Calcasieu Parish and the surrounding areas and provide this much-needed service. I want to take this opportunity to praise the employees of the clerk's office for their enthusiasm and willingness to take on this challenge to help provide this service to the public," Jones said.

Jones asked for the public's patience as his staff is learning the application process.

For application forms, information and documentation required as well as fees and other information, visit the official website for passport information, www.travel.state.gov.

    For the rest today, the rain chances remain high at 70% through the afternoon. Most of the rain will be to our west over in Texas, and along the Sabine River. There will not be as much rain in places to our east. Parishes like Allen, and Jeff Davis may only see some drizzle and light rain at times. Western Cameron, Calcasieu, Beauregard, and western Vernon parishes will likely have more rain throughout the day. This will be mostly rain, with storms unlikely.
