Attention Ellis County residents:

The Ellis County Treasury will resume normal operations on July 1st, 2020.  

While we will be open to the public for walk-in transactions, you are still able to do transactions through the mail, drop-box, and online if that is your preference.  

The safety of the residents, and the quality of the service you receive at the Treasury are of optimal concern for me, and I assure you we are doing all we can to make your experience here as convenient and safe as possible. Be well~

Lisa Schlegel

Ellis County Treasurer 

Transactions can be mailed to:  PO Box 520, Hays, KS 67601

The drop-box is located on the southeast corner of the building in the alley.
