Donegal County Councils public offices will reopen tomorrow.
They are however to reopen on an incremental and managed basis and there will be a number of protocols in operation for staff and customers.
Donegal County Council is continuing to review how its services are provided in a manner that safeguards the health and wellbeing of our employees, customers and the general public, in line with the Public Health advice.
Although offices are now opening to the public, Donegal County Council is encouraging customers to continue to contact staff by phone, email and online.
Where business is essential, customers visiting public offices are expected to observe and use the hand sanitisation facility, social distancing and to follow other directions given at the location by staff.
Customers should follow signage on how to queue up and be spaced apart as they make their way to public counters.
It is expected that queues may extend outside the buildings and customers should be prepared for queuing outside in poor weather.
Only one person will be allowed to proceed to the public counter. The remaining people in any group will be asked to wait outside.
Motor Tax Service.
The online system has been used extensively since the offices closed, and the public are being asked to continue to use this service. In this regard, customers can get help by calling the Council, speaking to a friend or relative who knows what to do, or checking www.motortax.ie
Postal applications can be sent to Letterkenny Public Services Centre, Neil T. Blaney Road, Letterkenny. It is important that forms are fully completed, including phone numbers so that the Council can contact you if required.
A drop box for applications will continue to be available in each Public Service Centre and at Three Rivers Centre, Lifford.
