Temporary “Closure” to walk in customers on Wednesdays
Tuesday, January 17, 2023
YAKIMA, WA – Effective immediately, Yakima County Building and Fire Safety Division will remain closed to customer traffic on Wednesdays. The Public Services 4th floor office will remain open; however, Building staff will work at their desks to process an unprecedented number of building permit applications.
The Wednesday “closures” was suggested by the building community and is imperative to meet customers’ need to have permits issued quickly. This closure on Wednesdays will allow staff to process all backlogged applications and process new applications quickly and efficiently.
Yakima County appreciates our valued customers’ understanding.
