Union Gap City Hall Moves Out
Mold has forced the Union Gap City Hall building to shut down. Starting next week, the city's operations will be organized out of three different buildings. Our news partner, KIMA Action News, reports most of the activity involving the public will be held out of the fire station. All phones and computers will be connected.
Department directors will set up at the Youth Center. The mayor, along with the rest of his staff, will be in the building behind City Hall.
These moves are supposed to keep the employees as close as possible so people can still use City Hall parking. At the moment, the library will not be effected.
Cleanup could take anywhere from two to eight weeks to complete. Right now, the city is focusing on finding a location for the municipal court. Court hearings for those in custody will be held in Wapato. Other hearings have been canceled until city leaders find a new location.
