Some county offices closing to public due to COVID-19

Amherst County’s government offices will be open to the public by appointment only from March 24 through April 3.

The Amherst County Public Service Authority has closed the public area of its office on Phelps Road in Madison Heights until further notice.

The county’s commissioner of the revenue and treasurer offices are closed to the public from Monday through Friday and will serve the public through phone and email service. For those offices’ contact information, visit the county’s website at www.countyofamherst.com.

The authority, which provides water and sewer service to some residents and businesses, is putting the measure in place to implement social distancing due to the coronavirus. “This has no effect on ACSA’s continued efforts to provide all our water and sewer customers services as normal; ACSA is not closing and all staff will be working,” a statement on the county’s website said.

The authority asks water and sewer bill payments be made by cash, check or money order in an envelope and placed in a slot on the front left side of the building, below the No. 113 sign.
