Public Access to City Hall


City Hall Reopening to Public with Enhanced Safety Measures

The city of Glendale is pleased to announce Glendale City Hall will reopen to public access Monday, June 8. Access was restricted in mid-March to protect the safety of both residents and staff due to COVID-19. As the city reopens facilities, safety remains a top priority and we will be following recommended health guidelines. City Hall will be open 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday thru Friday.

Visitors to City Hall will be asked to follow physical distancing measures. To help ensure distancing, a maximum of three visitors will be allowed in the customer service area at one time. For those visiting City Hall to make a payment, only one family member will be allowed in the customer service area, due to space limitations. Residents may continue to use the payment drop box outside the first-floor entrance of City Hall as well.

Additional Safety Measures

  • Enhanced cleaning and sanitizing of high-touch areas, including door handles, elevator buttons and counters.
  • Hand sanitizer available to the public when entering the building.
  • Plexiglas barriers in customer service areas.
  • Face coverings are recommended. 

As the city has faced the COVID-19 pandemic, we have worked to find the appropriate balance between respecting public health orders and maintaining services for our residents.
