As a preventative measure to ease the spread of the highly contagious Covid-19 Omicron variant, North Bend City Hall was closed to the public in late December.
At the time of the initial closure announcement, it was anticipated City Hall would be closed through January with an assessment of conditions to determine if an extension was necessary.
Due to the ongoing high community Covid-19 transmission rate, City Hall will now remain closed through February. During the past month, new cases reported in the City reached an all-time high since the pandemic began.
Mayor McFarland commented, “We thank residents for their understanding as we do our part to slow the spread of this highly contagious variant in continued support of our community health and economic vitality. Although public health data suggest new cases are decreasing from their peak in North Bend, community transmission is still categorized as high.”
City Hall will remain open to City staff, City Councilmembers, janitorial and other pre-approved contractors.
City staff can be reached by phone or email. Visit the City website for a full staff directory at https://northbendwa.gov/directory.aspx.
Utility bills may be submitted to the mailbox in front of City Hall, 920 SE Cedar Falls Way, or online HERE.
Another assessment will be performed in late February to determine when City Hall will reopen. Additional updates will be provided at that time.
