County Offices to Move to New Government Center in Mid-January

In the coming weeks, those entering the Wright County Government Center in downtown Buffalo or the Health & Human Services Center at the intersection of Highways 55 and 25 will be seeing signage informing them of the move from those two buildings to the new Government Center on Braddock Avenue NW – about two miles north of Buffalo on Highway 25.

The move is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of Jan. 17, 2022. Wright County Facilities Services Director Alan Wilczek explained that there are always a lot of moving parts when it comes to a significant move to a new facility, as personnel and equipment are relocated.

“We are a public service organization, so we understand the need to be open to the public to meet the needs they have from the county,” Wilczek said. “From Human Services to Planning & Zoning to Veteran’s Services to the Recorder’s Office to the DMV, there are numerous county departments that deal with county residents on a daily basis. Our goal is to get those departments moved into the new Government Center as quickly and completely as possible with minimum disruption of service to the public.”

While outside factors may play a role into the exact timing of the move as construction is still going on at the facility, a plan is in place to time out the move of specific departments to minimize the amount of time that services may be impacted.

As the move gets closer, residents will be informed of the process and specific dates in which departments will be moved and services potentially will be impacted. For example, the Wright County License Center’s move into the new facility will be partially conducted by the State of Minnesota, which has control over the camera equipment used to take driver’s license photos. Efforts are being planned and coordinated to minimize the “down time” of any public services offered by the county.

To stay updated on the status of the move, go to the county website (www.co.wright.mn.us) or follow Wright County MN on Facebook or Twitter. As timelines and updates become available, they will be shared with the public as all Wright County operations move to the Braddock Avenue campus.
