Murrieta to Begin Re-Opening City Facilities April 5
Murrieta City Hall will open its doors on Monday, April 5, 2021, with public hours from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. alternate Fridays. Public Works and Development Services counters will be fully accessible with no appointments required.
To provide a safe environment for all visitors and staff, everyone entering City buildings must wear a mask per CDC recommendations and have their temperature checked. Murrieta Police and Murrieta Fire and Rescue will also open their public lobbies on Monday.
“We have been operating behind the scene for almost a year now and looking forward to working directly with the public once again,” says Assistant City Manager Ivan Holler. “With more businesses opening, lower positivity rates, and more of us are getting vaccinated, the time is right to open our doors—and we are ready.”
Close behind are the Murrieta Library, Senior Center, and Community Center, all of which will begin their phased re-openings on Monday, April 12, 2021, with modified hours and programming. The Library, which is currently installing self-service Kiosks, will start by opening indoors on Mondays and Wednesdays (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Saturdays (noon to 4 p.m.). On Tuesdays and Thursdays, the Library will host its Grab and Go services from 10 a.m. to noon and 2 p.m. to 4 p.m., without indoor operations. After two weeks, the Library will expand its hours and programming.
The April 6, 2021, City Council Meeting will continue in its virtual format for now, with regular re-assessments. Visit the City’s website at www.MurrietaCA.gov for more information and updates.
