Important Contacts for Residents

Press Release

When we moved to the area, I was certain that there were a number of Clay County contacts that I may need to reach out to … the problem … I had no idea the phone numbers of those services … and phone books are so much a thing of the past! So, I made a list of a number of places and services. Maybe this list might be helpful to you or to someone you know. So, I will try to give you some of the ones that I thought generally might be good to have.
