Clerk will issue ‘Gender-neutral’ marriage licenses

   The Matagorda County Clerk’s office, in following the recent ruling from the U.S. Supreme Court, will issue gender-neutral marriage licenses this week. 
   “As an elected official I have taken an oath to execute the duties of the office, and that I will preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution and the laws of the United States and of the State of Texas without subjecting those actions to my own personal values,” said County Clerk Janet Hickl.
   The office processes marriage licenses from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
   The marriage license fee is $82. 
   The clerk’s office accepts cash or credit card.
   No checks will be accepted. 
   The fees are non-refundable.
