Contra Costa County is holding its annual block party next week for people to avoid making multiple stops to government offices or wait in long lines to take care of important tasks.

County departments like the clerk-recorder-elections department and the city of Concord are collaborating to provide a fun, festive event Tuesday offering a wide variety of on-the-spot government services at a single location.

This year’s event will be held 4-7 p.m. Tuesday at the Concord Library at 2900 Salvio St.

It’s the fifth year the county has hosted the increasingly popular event. The county rotates locations each year to provide opportunities to engage with different communities.

“This event is designed to bring together multiple services in one location and make it easier for county residents to get things done,” county Supervisor Ken Carlson said. “We’re serving residents where they are.”

Food trucks will be there, and parking is free.
