Entrance to the building will be from College Avenue, and visitors are required to wear a mask (State Mandate), and follow directional signs posted inside while maintaining 6ft distance between staff and other customers. All virtual services continue to be available, and we encourage you to use them if possible. For in-person service, appointments are recommended as response times may be longer due to reduced staff. All services may not be available in person. Appointments can be scheduled by contacting a department directly. For permits, we will have very specific information about scheduling 30 minute appointments.
