With the continued rise in COVID-19 positive cases, the Osage Nation Welcome Center remained closed to the public as of Jan. 21.
The Nation’s government continues to operate weekdays with Welcome Center departmental working staff able to assist constituents remotely. In the meantime, the Osage public can contact Constituent Services by phone or online with inquiries and service needs.
“The closure is a safety measure to keep Osage Nation employees and Osage Nation constituents healthy while continuing to provide services critical to our community,” according to a Jan. 19 online post.
The ON Tax Commission is also providing a secured drop box at the north entrance to the Welcome Center for any applications and other Tax Commission needs.
Tax Commission service information, including vehicle registration and renewal forms and business license and tax applications, are available online at: www.osagenation-nsn.gov/services/tax-commission
