MAYVILLE, N.Y.:-- Chautauqua County Executive PJ Wendel has announced that the temporary changes to county operations at the Hall R. Clothier (HRC) Building located at 7 N. Erie St. in Mayville, N.Y. will continue.
“We are still working on recovering from the water damage that occurred when a water line broke in the building on November 2, 2022,” said Wendel. “We appreciate everyone’s patience, understanding and cooperation as we work to repair office areas so our clients and impacted workers can safely return to the building.”
Due to a water line break that occurred at the HRC Building, the second, third and fourth floors of the building continue to be closed to the public. This closure only impacts the Public Health, Environmental Health and Social Services Divisions of the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS). As a result, the Environmental Health Division will still not be accepting water samples for testing.
County operations located on the first and basement floors of the HRC Building, which include the Office for Aging Services, Public Defender’s Office, Board of Elections, and Department of Motor Vehicles, are not impacted by this closure and will remain open to the public.
“DHHS operations in the building will be closed to the public until further notice,” said Wendel. “Once these operations are ready to reopen, we will update the public again at that time.”
