The City of Spokane is announcing that starting tomorrow, Friday, March 20, Spokane City Hall generally will be closed to the public. The lobby will be open for deliveries, and access to public meetings will be maintained.
The closure is needed to accommodate the City’s efforts to reduce the spread of COVID-19, ensuring proper social distancing and allowing more employees to work from home as directed by the governor. A full list of City service impacts is available on the City’s web site.
“This is a tough decision. In order to maintain our public services, we need to direct our citizens to interact with us through online and phone services,” says Mayor Nadine Woodward. “We are committed to delivering the services that our citizens rely on every day.”
Access to public meetings will be maintained:
City Council has moved their weekly committee meetings to City Council Chambers until further notice. Social distancing measures will be implemented during any public meetings. In order to reduce attendance at upcoming meetings, we highly encourage members of the public to comment on upcoming legislation by filling out this contact form.
These meetings will also be streamed live on CityCable 5 and the City’s web site. There are no Council meetings currently scheduled for April 6, 2020.
Additionally, here are some top services that are impacted by this change.
