Town Hall remains open although citizens and guests are asked to observe the following protocols (which have been in place since Town Hall re-opened) to safeguard other members of the public and Town staff:

1. Please visit Town Hall one at a time. We ask that if friends or family members accompany you, they wait outside unless it is necessary for them to assist. Pets that are not service animals should not accompany you on your visit inside Town Hall.

2. If someone is in front of you, please wait patiently outside until called in. Town staff will take steps after each visitor departs to disinfect any areas that may have been touched.

3. You must wear a mask to enter Town Hall. We don’t want to risk you or Town staff becoming inadvertently exposed to the coronavirus.

4. Please check to see if the business you want to accomplish can be handled online, or over the telephone. We continue to urge everyone to take advantage of available options to save yourself a trip.

Yard waste and compost: Yard waste and compost punch cards must be purchased at Town Hall. Cash or check is accepted.

Because of continuing restrictions, the La Conner Senior Center will remain closed at this time. Re-opening the Senior Center will take place at such time as we have been informed that it is safe to do so.
