Modification of County Services

Due to current state and federal emergency declarations and guidance about limiting unnecessary person-to-person contact, effective Thursday, March 19, 2020, Faribault County will be modifying how it delivers services to the public and will not be allowing public entry to most county buildings until further notice. Faribault County remains open to serving the public and will now do so through telephone, e-mail, mail, and on-line services from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday through Friday.  All departments are being staffed, some telecommuting or at minimal levels, and may not have the ability to answer all phone calls immediately based on demand. Messages will be returned in the order which they were received.


For your convenience a dropbox has been installed at the Courthouse Door A (NW corner) for Property Tax Payments, Recorder Items, Fine Payments, and Court Documents.  Please DO NOT insert cash.  The dropbox is for check or money order only.  Secure items with a paperclip or envelope (provided inside door above).  The dropbox is monitored by a security system.  For questions contact:

  • Recorder's Office at 507-526-6252
  • Court Administration (Fines & Court Documents) at 507-526-6273
