Town staff are happy to help in person when needed, but encourages residents to conduct business remotely when possible. Masks remain mandatory when visiting town hall.
The Parksville Civic and Technology Centre, at 100 Jensen Ave., is only open for in-person services for the payment of tickets or licence fees, and the purchase of bus passes. Access to the building is from Jensen Avenue east side, and masks remain mandatory before entry. Visitors will be asked to provide contract information for tracing.
