Due to the rise in COVID-19 cases throughout Snohomish County, Edmonds Mayor Mike Nelson announced Thursday that city buildings — including Edmonds City Hall — will be closed to the public effective Friday, Sept. 3.
“I understand these closures may be an inconvenience, but we must prioritize the public’s safety during these times,”Nelson said.
Staff will continue to support residents by email, phone, and online. Visit specific department webpages on the City of Edmonds website for further information.
The Edmonds Police Department business office will be closed to the public, but residents can still come to the department and use the emergency phones by either entrance to reach dispatch and have an officer contact them. During business hours, the lobby to the Public Safety Complex may be open. A phone will be in the lobby that will allow the public to reach the police records clerks. They will do their best to assist the public or get them in touch with an officer.
