As part of wage concession agreements with the County’s unions which achieved savings of over $9.6 million this year, the County Board of Supervisors approved plans to close many County Departments from December 24, 2010 through January 2, 2011.

Public safety, public assistance, and public health programs will remain available to the public during this time as the Sheriff, Fire, Public Health, Social Services, Mental Health, Emergency Services, and Public Works departments will remain open to provide essential services to County residents. Limited staffing will be maintained in the Clerk-Recorder-Assessor’s Office, the County Treasurer, and many general administrative offices in order to provide essential services.

A comprehensive list of full and partial department closures, as well as those departments that will remain open, is available here [PDF].
