COVID-19 Notice

On March 14, Orange County moved into the less-restrictive Red Tier under the State’s Blueprint for a Safer Economy. As a result, many local businesses and activities in Orange County were allowed to either expand capacity or resume operations.

Out of an abundance of caution, City Hall remains closed to the public until further notice. City staff will continue to be available via email and telephone during regular business hours.  

We appreciate your patience and cooperation as we strive to provide optimal service while protecting the health of our customers, our staff, and the general public.
