Community & Economic Development
Access to Services During COVID-19
In an effort to keep our employees and the community safe during the COVID-19 situation, we encourage constituents to utilize our online services. Our team is dedicated to keeping our virtual doors open and we will continue to update our list of online alternatives below. We appreciate your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
In an effort to minimize in-person contact, we are hosting Virtual Open Counter events every Wednesday, 9am-10am on Zoom with members of our team and the Department of Public Works. “Open Counter” is for citizens to communicate with staff regarding permitting and development matters. For more details and the Zoom information, please see our website calendar or Facebook event.
