ALEXANDER COUNTY (July 28, 2021) – The Alexander County Services Center provides a centralized one-stop shop for citizens and businesses as the facility houses 10 county departments or divisions under one roof.
The 20,000 square foot building, located at 151 West Main Avenue in downtown Taylorsville, accommodates the Register of Deeds, Tax Office, Parks & Recreation, Planning & Development, Building Inspections, Cooperative Extension, Soil & Water, Environmental Health, Geographic Information Systems (GIS)/911 Addressing, and Compliance & Procurement.
Several of the departments were in substandard facilities and were not conveniently located, so the services center has worked out well for both the employees who work there and those needing services from those departments. Having the 10 departments/divisions in the same building makes it more convenient for contractors, developers, etc. as they can do business with the various departments all at the same location. In addition, the Tax Office has a convenient drive-thru for tax payments.
When entering the front door, Parks & Recreation is to the left, Tax Office is to the right, and other departments may be accessed down the hallway. Clients should use the map just inside the front door to determine the location of the department they need.
Those needing departments located near the back of the building (Building Inspections, Planning, Register of Deeds, etc.) may use a door located near the Tax Office drive-thru on the west side of the building.
The Alexander County Services Center is open from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
