Clark County Auditor Greg Kimsey, Assessor Peter Van Nortwick and Treasurer Alishia Topper today announced they are closing the county joint lobby to walk-in customers through the end of January. The closure was prompted by the large increase in COVID-19 cases due to the omicron variant.
In a joint statement, the three elected officials said, “The safety of our customers and our staff is our top priority.”
The joint lobby, located on the second floor of the Public Service Center in downtown Vancouver, is the public-facing customer service center for all three offices. It had been open to walk-in customers on Mondays and Wednesdays.
Topper, Kimsey and Van Nortwick at the end of January will reassess whether to reopen the joint lobby to walk-in customers.
