Marriage Services Cut at Courthouse

Posted on Wednesday, July 1, 2015 at 11:03 am

untitled  Grundy County Mayor Michael Brady and County Court Clerk Tammy Sholey will no longer perform marriages at the Grundy County Courthouse.

Brady says he does not feel comfortable performing marriages.

“The statute states that marriages may (not shall) be performed at the discretion of the official,” says Brady. “In my official capacity as mayor, I have decided to no longer perform these ceremonies.”

Sholey says that her office will continue to issue marriage licenses, but with the increased traffic through her office, she “no longer has the time to perform marriages.”
