In the ever-expanding transfer of our lives onto the Internet, Contra Costa County is taking a test run at extending its on-line library chat system into other areas of county government.

Check out and click on the live web chat and ask away.

A news release from the office of Supervisor John Gioia suggest that residents  could ask things like “Where do I go for a building permit?” “What do I do about barking dogs?” “Is there a bus to the Martinez hospital?” “Where do I vote?”

The county library has had a chat function for years on its website, and will deploy the same employees during the trial run to answer the county questions .

Chat live Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.

If it works out, the county will make it permanent.

[You can leave a response, or trackback from your own site.]

    Is the chat closed for Presidents Day Monday?

    My guess is yes.
