County of Accomack Resumes Access by the General Public to Administrative Offices and Facilities by Appointment Only

County of Accomack Resumes access by the General Public to County Administrative Offices and Facilities by Appointment Only

Under the guidelines provided by the Governor that requires social distancing and a face covering when inside governmental buildings, the Accomack County Administrative office is expanding its service to now include face-to-face transactions by appointment for the Commissioner of the Revenue’s Office, Building, Planning & Zoning, the Real Estate Assessor’s office, Environmental Programs and the Treasurer’s Office starting on Monday, June 8, 2020. Further easing of restrictions on public entry to select County facilities is expected in the next few weeks. The County Administration Office was first opened in 1968. The small size of its customer engagement areas make social distancing extremely difficult so we ask for your patience as we take this next step in expanding current services.

County facilities have been closed to the public since Friday, March 20, 2020, but services were still available via online and through telephone, email and payment drop box. The public is encouraged to continue to use the county’s online options for payments and services as the majority of
transactions and services can be conducted remotely. Customer and employee safety and well-being remain our primary concerns, so please help us protect you and County staff by wearing a face covering when inside any County building.

To reduce wait times, the public is encouraged to call in advance to schedule an appointment time prior to visiting the County Administration Building for service. The most frequently used departments telephone numbers are listed below:

 Real Estate Assessor  787-5729
 Building, Zoning & Economic Development  787-5725
 Commissioner of Revenue  787-5747
 County Administrator’s Office  787-5700
 Environmental Programs  787-5728
 Treasurer  787-5738


Visit us at For assistance, please call us during normal business hours (8:30 a.m.–5 p.m.) at (757) 787 - 5700.  Additional information regarding options for conducting transactions with specific departments can be found on the County website, and at the entrance to the Administrative offices on Courthouse Avenue.

Citizens with mobility issues should call (757) 787-5743 when they are parked, remain in their vehicle and a staff member will come out to assist them.

Landfill, Transfer Station and Convenience Centers continue regular operating hours with limited interaction between the staff and public, use of face coverings and social distancing. All other County facilities, including Sawmill Park remain closed at this time.

In an effort to shield our citizens and employees from the spread of COVID-19 and to take the necessary precautionary measures to remain vigilant and prevent the spread of COVID-19 within our community, the County has created a webpage  devoted to COVID-19.  This site includes measures (hand washing, wiping down surfaces, and social distancing) that each and every member of our team and community can take to protect ourselves, our co-workers, and our families. It is our hope that these measures are effective at controlling outbreaks of COVID-19 when practiced religiously.
