FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, NJ - Somerset County Clerk Steve Peter kicks off his mobile office initiative on Saturday, Aug. 10.

“I’m very excited to bring our services to residents of Somerset County,” Peter said. “There has been a great response to our extended hours in Somerville, but we realize that many residents can’t easily make it there.  This mobile office will allow residents to access our services close to home on a Saturday.”

Peter and his staff will be at the Franklin Township Municipal Building, located at 475 DeMott Lane, from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
