“Ever since our office began processing passports, we have worked to make the experience as 
smooth as possible for our customers,” Clerk Ronnie Fussell said. “That is why we are happy to be 
able to offer this event on a weekend, so that people who may not be able to find the time during 
the week can still come and apply for a passport.”

The courthouse is located at 501 W. Adams St. Street parking is free in downtown Jacksonville on the weekend.
