County Announces Move Schedule for Government Center Departments

The offices and departments in the Wright County Government Center will be moving into their new facility in March. As with many significant building projects, the county has learned firsthand about the supply chain issues and worker shortages among the trade groups that were part of the construction that led to project delays. However, after some delays, the dates have been assigned for department moves from the current Government Center to the new Government Center (3650 Braddock Ave. NE north of Buffalo) in March.

Because many of the departments are public facing, the goal is to inform as many people as possible who will need to come to the Government Center to conduct business about the move schedule.

The move is going to be done incrementally over a 10-day period among departments in the existing Government Center (Administration, Assessor, County Commissioners, Finance and Taxpayer Services, Information Technology, License Center/DMV, Planning and Zoning, Recorder and Veteran Services) and Health & Human Services, which is currently in its own building at the intersection of Highways 55 and 25.

As the dates get closer, we will send out reminders because the dates are expectations, not set in stone. Most offices will be closed the day of their specific move and will reopen at 8 a.m. the following day at the new Government Center.

Here is the tentative schedule of move dates:

Monday-Tuesday, March 21-22 – Health & Human Services

Wednesday, March 23 – Administration and Veteran Services

Thursday, March 24 – Finance and Taxpayer Services and County Commissioners

Monday, March 28 – Planning & Zoning and Information Technology

Tuesday, March 29 – Assessor

Tuesday-Wednesday, March 29-30 – Recorder

Wednesday, March 30 – License Center/DMV

During the move, business will be conducted in both buildings. For example, if you need to visit Veteran Services, it will be at the new location starting Thursday, March 24. If you need to reach the Recorder’s Office, it will still be conducting business at the current Government Center until the end of the day on Monday, March 28. The county asks that you share this information with others so we can reach as many people as possible before, during and after the move is complete so they are aware that the downtown Government Center will be fully vacated by March 30.
