As we transition to this type of access for County services, please plan and prepare accordingly if you were anticipating a visit to County Offices in the near future. We will be posting our public service hours and contact information on office doors and county department websites. Some offices will be available by appointment only. Those offices will provide public notice of these kind of changes.We recognize this is a challenging time for all, and we remain deeply committed to the safety of our customers, teams, and communities. We will continue to communicate any service adjustments to you, monitor developments, keep our electronic messaging as current as possible and do our part, along with you, to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
