In-person services without an appointment will continue to be available for the Building Department, Community Development, Utilities Services, Public Works, and Fire Prevention and other services available at the facility.

In order to protect the health and safety of all who visit and work at the County Administration offices, please consider the following guidelines when planning to meet with County staff:
– Facemasks are required at all indoor County facilities
– Practice social distancing by maintaining a minimum distance of 6 feet from the nearest person while in the building

– Wash your hands before and after your appointment
– Please have your temperature scanned upon entering the offices
– If you think you may be sick or are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, please stay home and check the Indian River County website for ways to conduct your business electronically

While services provided by the Public Works, Community Development, and Utilities Departments will be re-opened without the need to schedule an appointment, we do encourage Indian River County residents to continue utilizing those services that are offered online, by phone, or by drop-box. Additionally, the Appointment Schedule will continue to allow County staff to offer services and resources to County residents and businesses while also ensuring all social distancing guidelines are followed.
