Eagle County will open buildings to the public beginning March 1

You can expect some wait times in the motor vehicle department

Eagle County facilities and operations starting March 1 will be open for in-person services to customers and visitors with required safety protocols.

Members of the public and all employees will be required to wear face coverings and adhere to social distancing, as well as occupancy requirements. Those who cannot wear a face covering due to a medical condition or otherwise feel uncomfortable are encouraged to conduct business over the phone, via email, or online at http://www.eaglecounty.us.

To comply with public health orders, a reduced number of employees will be working on site at all county facilities. The remainder will continue to work remotely until public health guidance is revised.

Accessing in-person services may result in longer wait times.

Specifically, wait times at the Eagle County Clerk and Recorder’s Offices may be longer than normal for those using in-person services.
