WALLA WALLA -- The Walla Walla Joint Community Development Agency is now open during the noon hour.
Agency Director Tom Glover said the change was prompted by the number of customers attempting to contact the office during that time, particularly residents of unincorporated areas and those outside urban growth areas who need burn permits.
The former City Development Services Department was closed during the noon hours, Glover said.
The former county Community Development Department was always open during that time. Both offices were abolished when the joint development agency was formed and began operation this year.
