  • The Office of the Wayne County Clerk and the Veterans service office today announced that Wayne County has begun to issue Veterans Discount Cards.  These County issued ID cards certify that the bearer has proof on file in the Office of the County Clerk that they are a Veteran of the United State Armed forces.
    Many Businesses offer discounts to veterans and the ID cards are a convenient proof of an individual’s status.
    The procedure for issuing the cards is:
    First, veterans will go to the County Veterans’ Office in the County Public Safety Building to obtain a letter certifying they are a qualified Veteran. If the customer does not have an active file at the Veterans office they will need to bring their DD214 discharge papers. The Veterans’ office will then in turn file the discharge with the County Clerk’s Office.
    Next, the veteran will then bring the letter from the Veterans office along with Photo ID to the office of the County clerk on Pearl Street in Lyons. The Clerks’ office will then issue the ID card.
    There will be no charge for the card.
    “The Office of the County Clerk, with the assistance of the County Emergency Management Office and County Veteran’s Office is proud to make these cards available to Wayne County’s Veterans,” said Wayne County Clerk Mike Jankowski. “The ID is an important way for Wayne County Veterans to take full advantage of the benefits they have earned.”
    “The Board of Supervisors is very please to have been able to help make these cards available to our veterans,” added Board Chairman Jim Hoffman.
    Anyone with questions can call 946- 7470 or email mjankowski@co.wayne.ny.us. They may also contact the Veterans Services office at 946-5993.
