Bottle Rock parking at County facilities downtown
To ensure continuity of County business during this week's
Bottle Rock Napa Valley
event, we will be carefully posting signs in the parking areas around the County administration building, Hall of Justice and Library. Generally, obey the signage, don't try to park in the Fifth Street Garage, and seriously consider all your alternatives regarding transportation, because ticketing and towing will be in effect. Oh, and have a great, safe time at Bottle Rock!
This week we're proud that our new Permit Service Center is open!
Join us on Tuesday, May 7, from 2 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. to check out our new Permit Service Center. One counter, one stop, to get the information you need. If you come prepared,
some permits can be issued in one day
Come to our Open House to learn more.

County residents safely disposed of 125 pounds of pills at last month's Drug Take Back Event. That's just pills, no packaging. The Sheriff's Dept reports that all three sites (Napa, American Canyon and Yountville) were busy and thanks everyone for protecting themselves, their families and the environment from unwanted or expired medication. Find out how to properly dispose of unwanted drugs or medication year round at the
