Death records from April 1971 are also available. The new office, which features remodeled counters to ensure ADA-compliance, is located on the first floor next to the Maps Room.

Office hours are Monday -Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Financial transactions are not accepted after 4:30 p.m. The office will remain open from 4:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday (except holidays) to answer questions and accept non-financial transactions.

Residents can also go online to check the fee schedule or apply for a birth or death certificate by visiting the Arlington Bureau of Vital Records website.

This move is a joint venture between the Financial Management & Resources and the Water Utilities.
