Town closes administrative buildings

The Town of Farmville has closed its administrative buildings to the public.

A press release from the town said departments will be staffed by employees who can assist citizens over the phone or by email. Citizens needing to contact the town are asked to call ahead or visit Farmville’s website at www.farmvilleva.com for the latest information before visiting any a town employee in person.

The lobby of the police department will be accessible during normal business hours, Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

A silver drop box on the front of Town Hall off Main Street and a second in the parking lot behind the building on South Street may be used to drop off payments. Water bill and property taxes may also be paid online or by phone. The town is waiving the 3% convenience fee typically charged for those types of payments.

Building permit applications and water and sewer connection fee applications are available online. Once completed they can be emailed or a drop off appointment may be arranged.

Contact numbers for town departments can be found at www.farmvilleva.com.
