The City of Ojai continues to provide online and telephone services. The City encourages residents and businesses to use online and telephone services if possible. Limited appointments will be made if needed, but protective measures will be required. We ask that visitors please adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear a face-covering during their visit to City Hall. To accommodate the public, additional protective measures have been taken, such as the installation of plexiglass barriers in frequent visited areas, high touch surface areas will be disinfected periodically, and hand sanitizer will be made available throughout City Hall.

To help mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we encourage residents to access services online, by phone, or e-mail, when possible. A drop box has been installed outside of City Hall near the main entrance. This box can be used to drop off any documentation you may need to bring to City Hall.
