The front vestibule is open with information on how to pick up permits, drop off building plans, purchase yard waste bags, etc. Staff will be present in the building and working to serve the community, and may be reached by phone or email (see staff directory). Front counters, “high touch surfaces” and other public spaces within the Government Center are being sanitized frequently, and hand sanitizer is available in public spaces.
