SUPERIOR — Douglas County and city of Superior offices are closed on Monday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.

The Douglas County Clerk’s Office would like to remind citizens of the requirements for obtaining a marriage license. If the ceremony is in another state, you must apply in that state. Once a couple applies for the license, there is a three-day waiting period before it is available; the license is valid to use for 60 days after issuance.

To apply for a marriage license with the Douglas County Clerk’s Office, you must make an appointment to apply and couples must bring all required certified documentation. Appointments are scheduled 8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday-Friday. Douglas County Clerk Sue Sandvick advises couples call at least four to five months prior to the planned wedding date for the latest information in order to avoid any last-minute problems.

The application fee in Douglas County is $100. To schedule an appointment to apply for a marriage license or for additional information please call the Douglas County Clerk’s Office at 715-395-1341.

The next meetings on the calendar are scheduled for the week of July 11. All will take place in room 201 of the Government Center:


  • Zoning committee: 9-11 a.m. Wednesday, July 13.
  • Health and human services board: 4:30-6:30 p.m. Thursday, July 14.
  • Energy committee: 9:30-11:30 a.m., Friday, July 15.
