Gaston County Offers Appointment-Based Services
GASTONIA, N.C. – In an effort to protect both its employees and residents, Gaston County is implementing appointment-based services at its administration building beginning next Monday, Dec. 7.
For those who need to make tax payments, The County continues to offer drive-through tax bill payments, for residents who wish to pay in person by cash or check, at 405 N. Chester St. in Gastonia. This eliminates the need for face-to-face contact, making this payment method a safer and contact-less option for citizens and county employees alike. The drive-thru operates Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Non-cash payments may also be made by utilizing drop boxes at the tax office, located at the Gaston County Administration Office, 128 W. Main Ave., in Gastonia. The drop boxes are located on each side of the rear entrance doors of the building.
The Gaston County Senior Center is also operating on an appointment-only basis. The Gaston County library system will continue to operate with the current in-person hours combined with curbside service. The Gaston County Museum will continue to be open to guests, but will require masks for anyone who chooses to visit.
Some county facilities will continue to require temperature checks and health questionnaires for employees and visitors, including all Gaston County Health Department locations, Gaston County’s Department of Social Services and the Gaston County Senior Center in Dallas. The Veterans Services Office, because it serves a clientele that is often high-risk, will remain closed for in-person services and will continue to serve that community via telephonic and email appointments. The Veterans Services Office is using a drop box to handle the delivery of documents.
