The current plan is to reopen to the public at 8:00 AM on Monday, April 6th. However, this date is subject to change based on a reevaluation of current conditions.
Officials are aware that vehicle registration tags may lapse during this time. Area law enforcement will not be actively ticketing for expired tags for the next several weeks to provide citizens with extra time to renew their tags.
The County wants to thank citizens for their understanding and patience during this time as we work through this together. Our primary concern is the safety and health of our citizens and employees as we continue to monitor the quickly changing aspects of the Coronavirus pandemic.
