VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTWO/WAWV) — The reopen date for Vigo County office buildings has been extended to July 6.
A message was sent out on behalf of Vigo County commissioners Friday morning. Those who need to speak with county officials, should do so over the phone or email. When necessary, visitors can contact their department to schedule an in-person appointment.
Near the end of May, commissioners’ original plan was to reopen county buildings to the public on June 15th.
Brad Anderson, Vigo Co. Commissioner, said they want to keep everyone safe.
“Our employees are here doing the work. The highway department is out doing their jobs. We’re just not allowing the public to come in. We’re still issuing permits and taking taxes. We must continue to do business. We have closings on houses, recording of deeds, that’s been going on. But now you make an appointment, if you feel like you need to come in and talk to somebody,” he said.
Visitors to county offices can do so in person starting July 6th, the extended date, visitors are still encouraged to wear face masks and social distance.
The northeast entrance will be the only available at the Annex starting July 6 and the west entrance at the courthouse. Visitors could be screened prior to entering county buildings.
