Live in Pinellas County? Don't go looking for a building permit today or a furry friend Wednesday.
The county's building department and Animal Services adoption center are among offices that will be closed Wednesday so workers can attend an employee appreciation event at Sand Key Park. The park will be closed until 4 p.m.
Only offices and departments that operate under the Board of County Commissioners are affected. They include code enforcement, community development, economic development, justice and consumer services, and health and community services. The Florida Department of Health in Pinellas County on Ulmerton Road will remain open.
The offices of the Sheriff's Office, Tax Collector, Property Appraiser, Clerk of the Circuit Court and Supervisor of Elections, also will remain open, as will the public areas of the county's parks and preserves, the county landfill, and the household electronics and chemical collection center.
