Due to the continuing increase in COVID-19 cases in Washington County, the lobby and customer service area of City Hall will be closed through the month of January in order to protect staff and the public from contracting and spreading the virus.
Staff will continue to work and other City Hall offices will be accessible by appointment only.
During the closure, customers can make payments online, over the phone (fee free), or via the City Hall drop box on Franklin Street. Business such as scheduling moves, making payment arrangements, and inquiring about accounts can be handled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 301-790-4160.
