The Hamilton County Commissioners are asking residents to do as much of their county business online as possible. Like any business, the county is trying to limit transmission of COVID-19 among staff and maintain business operations.
“The county provides services that are instrumental to our community,” County Commissioner Christine Altman says. “We need to do our best to keep the folks in dispatch, in law enforcement, and in our offices healthy so we don’t have any interruptions in government business.”
The county has created a webpage listing all the county business that can be conducted online – including how to file for an absentee ballot and how to pay your property taxes. You can find the list at this link.
In the meantime, many county employees are telecommuting or working flexible hours in an effort to distance themselves from one another.
“We are committed to staying open as long as we can,” Altman says. “But in order to do that, we need the community’s help. Not only is online business easier, but it’s also more convenient and you’ll be doing your part to keep our staff healthy.”
