Community Development Department reopens for walk-in services

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — The county’s Community Development Department reopened Monday for walk-in services after being closed last month when six employees tested positive for COVID-19, officials said.

County officials posted the update on the county website. County officials have also installed new plastic barriers in the department to limit contact between employees and customers.

“While the improvements to our front counters are now complete, we urge caution as you proceed through our lobby area as Building Division renovations remain ongoing,” county officials said on the website. “Please take advantage of our drop-off, electronic permitting, and phone-based services to avoid delays and help us practice safe social distancing. We thank you for your cooperation.”

The Community Development Department halted in-person services Dec. 14 after officials learned workers tested positive for COVID-19 within that past week. The department includes current development, code enforcement, long range planning and fire safety divisions.

Other COVID-19 health precautions have already been in place at the county administration building. The facility has temperature scanners; employees and customers are required to mask up when going inside the county buildings.
