Passport offices in Collin County will reopen Wednesday after a fee dispute forced them to close for two days this week.
The offices in McKinney and Plano were forced to temporarily close Monday and Tuesday because of a fee dispute with the Dallas Passport Agency.
Collin County District Clerk Lynne Finley said the dispute centered on overnight passport processing fees.
Collin County charges $25 for the service while the Dallas Passport Agency charges $23.75, Finley said. The Dallas Passport Agency said Collin County is charging $1.25 too much, according to Finley.
Finley said Collin County processes about 40,000 passports each year. It's been collecting the $25 fee since 2013.
She said requests to process passports overnight are relatively rare adding the last request was in March.
NBC 5 witnessed a stream of frustrated customers at the Plano office Tuesday because they were unable to receive service.
The latest news from around North Texas.
A sign on the door at the Plano location notified people the offices were temporarily closed.
Finley told NBC 5 she obtained an order from an administrative judge to change the amount of the fee collected to $23.75.
The Collin County Commissioners Court will discuss the matter on Thursday.
