BOISE, Idaho — The City of Boise announced this morning it will expand in-person service offerings starting February 1. A news release from the Mayor's Office says the opening will be done cautiously and follow health protocols.

City Hall will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for in-person services like the City Clerk's Office, Utility Billing Services and Planning Development Services. The front desk and lobby of City Hall West will also be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Boise Public Library will reopen for limited in-person services starting February 8. Those services include collection browsing, hold pick-up (also available curbside) and account help and reference services. Computer access will be open as well during certain hours.

Other services that will be opening on February 1 are the Parks and Recreation Administration Office, Fort Boise Community Center, Foothills Learning Center and the Boise Urban Garden School. Restrictions at the Boise Airport terminal remain in place to protect the traveling public and airport employees.

Facilities that will stay closed are the Boise Depot, Dick Eardley Senior Center, Idaho IceWorld, James Castle House and Boise WaterShed.

The City will continue to monitor the COVID-19 pandemic and all services offered to ensure residents' and City employees' health. It is still encouraged to use virtual services when possible, but in-person services will be available for those who need them.

Anyone who enters a city facility will need to wear a face-covering that covers the mouth and nose and maintain social distancing.
