Westmoreland County prothonotary to process passports at health expo

Rich Cholodofsky

Westmoreland County’s Prothonotary Office will process passports at next week’s Health and Wellness Expo in Hempfield.

The event, which will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Oct. 23 at the Ramada by Wyndham Greensburg Hotel and Conference Center, will feature information booths detailing programs and services for seniors, persons with disabilities and care givers.

The county’s prothonotary office primarily oversees the filing of civil and family court documents but also serves as a processing center for passports.

Those seeking to apply for passports and photographs at the health fair are asked to bring a birth certificate and drivers’ licenses for identification. The cost to apply for a first passport is $155 and includes a picture. The cost for a passport card $75 . Pictures for passport renewals cost $10. Routine and expedited services are available.

Checks can be used as payment for passport services. For more information, call the prothonotary office at: 724-830-3506.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
