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.
The latest news from around North Texas.
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.
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.
