Poulsbo City Hall reopens in a limited capacity

After over a year of being closed, Poulsbo City Hall is open to the public in a limited capacity.

Despite some initial concern that Kitsap County would be moved back to Phase 2 of the state COVID-19 Reopening Plan, the county remains at Phase 3, which allows for City Hall to reopen, except for public meetings that will remain virtual.

“According to our policy, our doors are open for people to come into the building, ask questions at the counter and schedule appointments,” Poulsbo Mayor Becky Erickson said.

The building will be limited to 50 percent capacity, including in its meeting rooms and main meeting hall. Office counters will be open at a limited capacity, due to short staffing, allowing employees to take lunch from 12:15-1:15 p.m. Signage on all of the doors encourages guests to continue to follow all COVID guidelines such as wearing a mask, sanitizing hands and not coming to City Hall if they are sick.

The City Council will be discussing further coronavirus-related policies at its meeting May 12.

Additionally, Erickson announced on Facebook that she has resumed her open office hours on Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon. No appointment is necessary, but rather than meeting in her office, guests are asked to meet at the City Hall entrance on 3rd Avenue. “The tradition I started in June of 2010 must continue,” she said.
