COVID-19 County Offices

Health and government officials are working together to maintain the safety, security, and health of the residents of Brevard County.

Public Works

The Public Works Department is fully operational. Office staff and field personnel are taking the appropriate, recommended safety precautions. The Road & Bridge Program continues to receive and respond to customer service requests, and they are also still working on many important construction and maintenance projects. The Traffic Operations Program is also responding to various requests related to traffic control devices and they are continuing ongoing transportation and safety improvement projects. The Engineering Program is accepting and reviewing permitting submittals electronically and conducting inspections with a higher focus towards safety. Facilities Management also continues to process all facility related requests, including enhanced cleaning and decontamination services in response to potential exposure concerns.

Mosquito Control

Mosquito Control continues to operate full-force, managing mosquitoes and responding to customer requests County wide. Spraying services also continue when justified by weekly mosquito trapping, as usual. Our field staff is advised to practice social distancing when responding to customer service requests in the field by adhering to 6-foot CDC recommendation. Also, the few office staff we have are spread out among separate buildings, and easily practice social distancing. Further, all outreach activities are suspended until further notice.

Solid Waste

All services are normal.

Utility Services

For the Mims and Barefoot Bay Utility System, we have stopped all water shut-offs until circumstances change.

MIRA

At this time, MIRA does not anticipate any reduction in services to the public, or to our work items, as long as our offices are permitted to remain open. There are persons from the general public that visit the MIRA office every day, be it a septic to sewer grant application, a contractor, a development proposal, general advice and information, facade grants, meetings with engineers and architects, and other projects we are working on. Normally, there are no more than 5 person, including clients in the MIRA office at one time.So, we maintain social distancing, and after these guests depart we take necessary precautions. Further, we are cancelling MIRA Board and Committee Meetings until we are encouraged to have gatherings of 10+ persons, or emergency orders allow online meetings with Board Members, with a system that is accessible to the public.

If our offices are closed, or our staff have compromising health issues that are questionable, we will take our work from home; check email, voicemail, make calls, continue to deliver services, and meet with clients in the field, if permitted to do so. Staff is learning how to make the VPN connections, and staff will utilize Zoom conferencing for Staff Meetings. If staff are working at home, certain hours of the day, we will be certain to have office coverage, for the general public, during normal working hours for as long as the building remains open.

The County wide MIRA Brownfield Seminar, scheduled for April 2nd, has become a Webinar. We are taking precautions to the fullest extent we can to keep touched surfaces sanitized, and hands clean, pursuant to CDC guidelines, on a 2-hour basis.

Human Resources

Human Resources is continuing recruitment efforts with current job opportunities posted on the County's Website. Phone interviews and/or video conferencing options are available for candidates selected for interviews. And, the New Hire processing will continue, but will be limited to 10 or fewer employees in accordance with social distancing protocols. Lastly, HR staff are available by phone and e-mail to conduct regular business as needed.

Fire Rescue

Fire Rescue facilities are closed to public access with the exception of sharps box exchanges.

Tourism

The Tourism Office continues to take calls and emails from tourists (and locals) answering questions about things to do and places that are still open. They can call 321-433-4470 and press 0 or 1. The line is open Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM. People can also email info@visitspacecoast.com to get their questions answered.

UF / IFAS Extension in Brevard

UF / IFAS Extension in Brevard will continue to answer questions from the public through email and phone calls, and working to make more classes accessible through technology. We will post educational content on our website and social media platforms.

North Brevard Economic Development Zone

NBEDZ continues to forward its electronic database of local businesses weblinks on financial and technical assistance available from federal and state sources during the COVID-19 event. We are also maintaining contact with the EOC's ESF-18 station (business and industry), helping to forward information on special needs to the local business community. And, staff is reassessing its current program offerings, to determine if any new assistance programs can be implemented to deal with the economic impact that the COVID-19 crisis is likely to have on local commercial enterprises over the next months.

Natural Resources Management

All NRM public services and construction projects are continuing on schedule through a mix of remote, field and office rotation assignments. We have the email address, NRM_Permits@brevardfl.gov for intake of all natural resources permit requests.
