Alder Halverson’s Updates

City Service Desks are Re-opening

July 8, 2021 10:15 AM

The City of Madison is rapidly restoring in-person access to City services, while maintaining increased access online and via phone.

Many City agencies continued to operate in-person services at full or reduced capacity throughout the pandemic, including police and fire services, Metro bus service, Streets services, City Clerk's Office, Public Health, public libraries, City parks and many office-based services which continued to serve residents through appointment-only, mail or online services while Dane County was under public health orders.

"When Public Health orders lifted in June, our staff began their transition back to City offices. With a month of preparation in cooperation with Dane County, we have opened the Madison Municipal Building and parts of the City-County Building downtown, as well as other public offices throughout the City," said Mayor Satya. "I'm pleased to be able to say that most City offices are now able to safely offer in-person service again."

This week and next, many City agencies are expanding in-person service delivery.

The following agencies are currently open for in-person service:

Assessor's Office (210 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. and 1600 Emil St.)
Engineering Division (210 Martin Luther King, Jr. Blvd. and 1600 Emil St.)

Masks are still required in Metro offices and on Metro busses per federal order for transportation facilities and in the City-County Building through a Dane County mandate. Masks are no longer required in City offices with the exception of the City County Building at 210 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. due to a requirement from Dane County. Those who have not been vaccinated are encouraged to wear masks in all City buildings.
