Missoula City Hall Reopening Update
As of Monday, May 18, 2020, some employees will be returning to work at City Hall at 435 Ryman Street. Public access to offices will remain limited, with the exception of Municipal Court on the first floor, and visitors will be required to wear face coverings that cover the nose and mouth. Please provide your own face covering if possible. We are currently discouraging in-person meetings, but if no practical alternative presents itself, we will try to accommodate in-person meetings with adequate social distancing and face covering use. Meeting virtually or by phone will remain the preferred option. Other city facilities will remain locked and closed. City council and city council committee meetings will continue to be held virtually. Advisory Boards and Commissions will not meet unless necessary, and if they do, it will be virtually and not in person. You can review the press release here.
Please check this area for more updates as more information becomes available.
