EUSTIS — The Lake County Department of Public Works will host two open houses on Thursday, Oct. 26, from 2 to 4 p.m. at the Department’s new offices, located at 437 Ardice Ave. in Eustis and 31150 Industry Drive in Tavares.
The Department moved last month from a building at the corner of Main Street and Sinclair Avenue in downtown Tavares to a leased facility in Eustis and the former Community Services Annex in Tavares to make room for additional judicial staff.
The entire Department is housed at the new facility in Eustis, except for the divisions of Road Operations, Parks and Trails and the administration staff for Fleet Management, which are located at a satellite office in Tavares. This relocation is temporary as an additional facility off of Ardice Avenue is to be constructed in the next six months to accommodate the remaining divisions of the Department of Public Works.
The open houses will include light refreshments. The new general information phone number for the Department of Public Works is (352) 483-9000.
