On Monday, May 4, 2020, the City of Clearlake reopened the City Hall and Police Department lobbies to the public, Monday through Thursday, 8:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. Providing essential services in a safe manner to our citizens has been the priority and we continue to do so

by putting new procedures in place to do business at City Hall.

A new plexiglass barrier has been installed at the City Hall public counter, as well as floor markers allowing a maximum of three citizens within the lobby area to assist in maintaining social distancing, and regular sanitization of surfaces. The Police Department lobby area is also open during regular business hours for a maximum of two citizens at a time. We apologize for any wait times you may encounter and appreciate your understanding and patience as we navigate

these uncharted times.

Larger group meetings, including City Council and Planning Commission meetings will continue to be held virtually via Zoom with opportunities for public participation through Open Town Hall and email. The City continues to provide normal business through phone calls, email, and video conferencing by appointment.

Please call (707) 994-8201 for questions or accommodations in conducting City business.
