Sanpete County closes clerk’s office to marriage licenses

Sanpete County commissioners held an emergency meeting this morning, directing county clerk Sandy Neill to not issue any marriage licenses until Tuesday morning, as they anticipated a stay of District Judge Robert Shelby’s ruling that legalized same-sex marriage in Utah.

“If no ruling is made by midnight tonight, the clerk’s office will issue licenses during business hours on Tuesday, Dec. 24,” the commission’s statement read.
