The following changes will take place for at least the next two to three weeks and will be re-evaluated as new data about COVID cases becomes available.

  • City Clerk, Planning, Engineering, Building, Business license and other services will
    continue to be available by phone call, or email. Appointments will be accepted for
    work that cannot be reasonably be done by phone or email from 8 a.m. – 6 p.m.,
    Monday- Thursday.

    popular Library-A-Go-Go Program which allows residents to reserve and pick up
    materials by visiting or calling (760) 322-READ. The Library’s
    popular passport program will continue to be available by appointment only.
