The Milwaukee County Courthouse will be open 9 a.m.-1pm today to allow couples to receive marriage licenses.

The courthouse stayed open until 9 p.m. on June 6.

Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele said he will personally pay for any overtime costs associated with keeping the courthouse open.

The county register of deeds will be in the courthouse this morning to assist those who need to purchase a copy of their birth record for the marriage application process.

Since the ROD cashiering system is turned off for the weekend, payment for birth record copies can be made in cash — exact amount, no change given — or personal check. The cost is $20 for the first copy and $3 for each additional copy purchased at the same time.

Couples interested in getting married should use the entrance off of Wells Street, between 9th and 10th Streets.
