Williamsport City Hall offices still available to public by appointment only
Appointments need to be made to see City Hall employees other than those at the treasurer/tax collector and Bureau of Codes at City Hall, a policy Mayor Derek Slaughter put in place shortly after the COVID-19 pandemic began last year.
A sign remains on the first floor blocking entry to the stairs leading to the second and third floors, although the elevator remains in use.
“City Hall open to the public by appointment only,” the sign reads.
On the sign is a list of city personnel, their office phone numbers and emails. Appointments are required except at the tax office or for a permit at codes.
Meanwhile, City Hall has undergone extensive renovations to its exterior as part of the accessibility upgrades. There are a new sidewalk and curb cuts allowing accessibility in preparation for installation of a new access ramp.
When asked, Slaughter did not say when or if the visitation policy will change.
