Mono County Civic Center Opens to Public on July 13, 2020

MONO COUNTY, Calif. (July 8, 2020) – Effective July 13 (Monday), all current Mono County public services operating out of the Sierra Center Mall will have transitioned to the Civic Center. This includes public-facing operations provided by the Department of Social Services and Community Development.

All online and phone services remain in place due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, and all Mono County departments continue to service residents in a remote capacity.

“We are excited about our move to the Civic Center, which was realized on schedule and on budget, even given the current circumstances,” said Bob Lawton, County Administrative Officer. “Our Departments have been serving Mono County residents remotely for nearly four months, and we appreciate the public’s patience and flexibility as we navigated our physical move to the Civic Center, and our virtual move to online services in March.”

In addition to their online presence, the Department of Social Services and Community Development Department will provide printed copies of applications and other resources, as well as a drop-box at the Civic Center.

Once Plexiglas sneeze guards are installed in interior department suites, direct customer-facing interactions will resume.

Additional information on these services, which include assistance programs, child welfare services, adult services, employment services, senior programs, and much more can be accessed here:

All Mono County departments remain open, and services are available virtually via online resources and telephonic services. This includes the Departments of Behavioral Health, Social Services, Community Development & Planning, Public Health, Economic Development & Tourism, Public Works, and more.

A full listing of departments and how they can be reached can be accessed on the Government tab of the Mono County website:

Construction of the 33,000 square foot Mono County Civic Center building began in April 2019. Located on Sierra Park Road between Mammoth Hospital and the Mammoth Lakes Police Department, the new Civic Center brings essential County services under one roof, providing easier, centralized access to programs and offices, and a professional setting for public meetings.
