Whatcom County Government are temporarily closed to public “in person” services. (Our lobby/Permit Centers will be closed to the public.) However, we are still very much “open for business”. We will continue to provide services for permit processing and staff will be available to assist customers and the public via telephone, email and video conferencing options.
We encourage our customers to utilize the following online and telephone options:
PLEASE NOTE: We will perform inspections on projects consistent with the Governor’s Implementation of Phase 1 Construction Restart Addendum and Phase 1 Construction Restart Job Site Requirements.
