Who can "Accept Service"?

All claims, summons and complaints against the County or a County department must be "served" (delivered) to the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors, the agent authorized to accept service on behalf of the County of Contra Costa. No departmental employee should accept service of any claim, complaint or summons on behalf of the County or County agency. The process server will be directed to deliver the papers to the Clerk of the Board on the First Floor of the County Administration Building. This office does not accept service, unless there is a prior agreement to accept service on behalf of a client.
