Ojai City Hall services are available to the public by appointment to help protect the public and staff. The City of Ojai will continue to provide expanded online and telephone services and encourages residents and businesses to use these services when possible.

The COVID-19 virus is still active so the city is taking steps to ensure a safe environment for our employees and for members of the public who need to visit City Hall. We ask that visitors adhere to social distancing guidelines and wear a face-covering during their visit. 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.

To make an appointment, residents should call the City department that they wish to visit. A full list of city departments may be found below. An employee from that department will meet you at the door and accompany you to the department that you are scheduled to visit.
