City Hall Reopens to the Public July 6

July 2, 2020

After a three-month COVID-19-related closure, Ferndale City Hall will reopen to the public on Monday, July 6. We will be opening with new limited hours: Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

City Hall offices and public spaces have been outfitted with a number of additional safety measures to ensure the health and well-being of staff and visitors alike, including:

  • Hand sanitizer stations
  • Sneeze-guards between the visitors and staff at the front counter
  • Sneeze-guards between cubicles and open-concept work spaces
  • Social distancing floor-marker guides
  • A digital, thermal temperature-scanner that staff and workers must use both before arriving and leaving City Hall for the day (temperatures are logged; anyone with a fever is required to leave)
  • Mask or face covering requirement for visitors and staff in all common areas (front counter, hallways, restrooms, conference rooms, and when up walking about the building)
  • Additional cleaning and sanitizing measures by both office staff and facilities management every day

All regular City Hall services—payments, water/utility billing, Building Department permits and records, elections, code enforcement, and parking—will be available to residents. For those who prefer not to visit City Hall in person, all services remain available online.

Please note that the City Clerk and Elections office has moved to the lower-level City Council Chambers to promote adequate social distancing between staff and residents. For ballots, voter registration, or questions about voting and elections, please follow the signage and visit our City Clerk staff downstairs.

The Kulick Community Center remains closed at this time.
