Essential City services continue without interruption

The health and safety of the community and City employees continues to be our highest priority.

Although City offices are closed to the public, all essential services, including police, fire/emergency medical, and water, sewer and stormwater utility services will continue without interruption. Community Development and Public Works staff continue to work on projects as allowed by state directives, and Municipal Court continues to operate as ordered by the WA Supreme Court.

Information for Residential and Commercial Contractors is available on our Building Division page.

We appreciate your efforts to stay informed.  Please continue to practice social distancing, wash your hands, wear a mask, and stay home if you are sick to stop the spread of COVID-19.
