Camarillo City Hall will close to walk-in traffic, effective Monday, 12/14

Camarillo, California – Camarillo City Hall will close to walk-in traffic, effective Monday, December 14. City services will be available online and over the phone only.

The closure will remain in effect until further notice and will be reevaluated on a regular and as-needed basis in order to timely respond to rapidly changing conditions and ensure consistency with State and County directives. There will be no interruption of police, fire, water, sewer, transit or trash and recycling services, during this time.

“Our City employees continue to be vigilant, responding to new circumstances, getting information to the community, and ensuring the protection of our community’s health and safety,” explained City Manager Greg Ramirez. “This is not ideal; but given the direction that the COVID numbers are going, we feel this is the safest thing to do right now in order to avoid any unintended consequences.”

Many services are available online or via phone. There may be some instances of prolonged wait times on permits and other document requests due to modified staffing configurations; however every effort will be made to continue to process permits and documents timely and efficiently. The full list of City services that are available online and by phone can be found in the City’s COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions at www.cityofcamarillo.org/covid19.
