This is a web cam through the Jefferson County Clerk's Office - Fiscal Court building Downtown
Here in Jefferson County, our Clerk's office is kind enough to provide, as a service to the citizens, web cams in each of their offices so that people can check to see how busy they are before leaving home to renew their license or registration. Check out their web site at
NEW LINK!!! (visit link)
There has been some intermittent issues with the webcam not updating or appearing not to update. Before you give up logging, be sure to refresh your page a number of times over a 5 minute period to see there new webcam picture as it is taken. Alternatively you can go out and back into the webpage and have the same effect.
The specific office for this web cam is the downtown location at 531 Court Place in the Fiscal Court building between 5th and 6th streets. On the web site itself, the Downtown Office is pictured half-way down the page. The site says that the web cams update every 5 minutes, but I have found that they update on a little more random timeframe. Which of course means to may be sitting for a while.
As it is with all web cams, go to the Downtown Branch in the Fiscal Court Building, call an unsuspecting friend, direct them to the web address and ask that they save your picture WHEN it finally shows you sitiing on the appropriate bench with your GPSr placed descretely around you. If it is after hours you can generally still be seen in the doorway by the webcam so aim for that picture for logging purposes.
Sounds simple enough?
Remember to SMILE, just like you did for that wonderful license picture.
I have included, as an example a picture of the Downtown office and a Picture of ME at the Downtown office.
Downtown Branch Office
Fiscal Court Building
531 Court Place
(502) 574-5700 (ask about the Downtown Branch!!)
Hours: Monday - Friday, 8:30 - 4:30
UPDATE!!! - Apparently, the office is closed periodically at the ends of months for inventory purposes so if you're aiming to go around the 28th,29th,30th, or 31st, it may behoove you to call and double check the hours. (Thanks to Tenebrus for the info) ALSO, there have been some issues with the cameras updating on a truly regular basis. Expect some delay, i.e. bring something to read.
This Cache can ONLY be completed at the Downtown Branch. In order to use other branches, there would have to be a Webcam cache similar to this one for each branch. Those so inclined are welcome to add to Louisville's Webcam caches, thus far numbered at one. All Hail Team Sing!!

- JBF at County Clerk's Office in the Fiscal Ct. BldThis Picture was taken after I had left Court for the morning. You can see all the necessities of an attorney's day. Coffee, Paper, Grey suit, Briefcase, and on top of the Briefcase, a GPS. Having just sent a non-admitting Child Sex Abuser to prison for 5 years, I was feeling rather full of myself.
