Sonoma County offices reopen for in-person service

What about Sonoma City Hall?

Interim City Manager Dave Kiff, appointed in January 2021, told the Index-Tribune that the timing of the reopening of Sonoma’s City Hall is a current topic of discussion.

Most Sonoma County government offices reopened for limited walk-up service on April 19.

“We are excited to welcome the public back to our offices, now that it is safer for in-person work,” said Sheryl Bratton, Sonoma County administrator, in a press release announcing the news. “During the pandemic, our employees never stopped working for our residents. Many have just done our jobs remotely while others were working onsite filling essential functions. We look forward to seeing people again - mask to mask.”
