COLUMN: From the Clerk’s Desk - Passport applications, photos can be processed through town

— Just a reminder that the Lysander Town Clerk’s office is authorized and trained by the U.S. Department of State as a passport acceptance facility. We process applications for passport books and cards with no appointment necessary.

The following are the mandated fees set by the U.S. Department of State charged by all authorized acceptance facilities such as your local post office, library or other town clerk office:

Adults (16 and older) $110 for book/ $30 for card

Minors (under age 16) $80 for book/$15 for card

Processing/Execution fee for each application $25

Additional fees (if needed): Expedite Processing $60

Overnight Delivery Return Fee (Passport Book only) $12.85

Estimated processing times by the National Passport Center of the U. S. Department of State are four to six weeks for routine applications and two to three weeks for expedited ones. Applications can be obtained from our office, at our website, townoflysander.org or at travel.state.gov.

For your convenience, the Lysander Town Clerk’s office does have the ability to take the required photos necessary for applications and the cost is $10.

So, if you are planning to travel outside our country in the near future, visit us or any one of the U.S. Department of State authorized acceptance facilities to obtain your passport.

Lisa Dell is the Lysander Town Clerk. Call her at 638-0224.
