Linn County Community Services

The public health of our community is of the utmost importance that is why the Community Services department is currently closed to the public. However, it is important that we maintain a high level of service while keeping staff and customers safe. As always, you may contact our office at 319-892-5600 Monday – Friday. Phones will be answered from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. during the building closure.

We appreciate your patience during this unprecedented time and we thank all of Linn County for your continued support.
