YAKIMA, WA – Effective Wednesday, October 26, 2022, Yakima County Building and Fire
Safety Division will be closed to customer traffic on Wednesdays through the end of December.
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 temporary 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.
