Here’s what City offices will look like:
City Hall will reopen Monday at 8 a.m. The east entrance at 435 Ryman St. will be the only public entrance. Security staff will greet the public and ask basic screening questions for COVID19 symptoms and exposure and weapons. Visitors, other than Court visitors, must have appointments. Visitors with appointments will be provided with badges and can proceed to the pertinent offices.
Weapons will not be permitted in Municipal Court, Municipal Court offices or the Court public hallway. State law now permits people with concealed weapon permits to carry concealed firearms elsewhere in City buildings. Anyone wishing to carry a concealed weapon in City facilities will need to provide a valid concealed weapon permit for admittance. The weapons must be kept concealed and not touched or handled.
The Ryman Street entrance will also serve as the central check-in for neighboring City downtown satellite buildings across Ryman Street and on West Pine Street. Those buildings will also remain locked, and visitors will be admitted by appointment. To arrange appointments with staff at other City facilities, call the specific department. Visit the City website at https://www.ci.missoula.mt.us for contact information and hours for each department.
Community Planning, Development & Innovation will continue to offer services by phone and virtually as well as in person for such services as the Zoning Desk, business licensing and permitting.

The Missoula City Council will continue to meet by Zoom webinar on Monday evenings and Wednesday for committee meetings while City technology staff continue to work on solutions for holding hybrid meetings that combine online and in-person participation.

Drop boxes for payment of utility bills, parking tickets and payments to the Court, as well as to drop off documents for offices, will continue to be available at City Hall and at the Missoula Water office at 1345 W. Broadway.
