FONDA-The Montgomery County clerk's office is now handling a veterans discount program and the county's pistol permit program.
The discount program, known as "Return the Favor," issues veterans a plastic photo ID that will be eligible for discounts at participating businesses. The program is free, and more than 50 businesses have registered, according to the clerk's office.
The office will also take over the Pistol Permit Program at the request of Montgomery County Judge Felix Cantena.
New pistol permit holders will be given a photo ID with fingerprints attached, as well as a card with the list of registered firearms.
Because of the large amount of interest in the programs, the county clerk asks that appointments to be made. Call 853-8119 to schedule an appointment.
