After operating on an appointment-only basis for more than a year, Malibu City Hall is open for walk-in business.

The restrictions to access were prompted by the pandemic. But with COVID-19 numbers steadily improving, high vaccination rates and new statewide workplace rules in place, city staff resumed non-appointment, in-person service at noon Monday.

City Hall, located at 23825 Stuart Ranch Road, will now open at 7:30 a.m. weekdays, and close at 5:30 p.m. every day but Friday, when closing time is 4:30 p.m.

Everyone must wear facemasks while inside.

Drinking fountains are still locked up, and meetings of the City Council, Planning Commission and other bodies are still being done remotely.

Those who wish to make an appointment for City Hall business may do so at malibucity.org/appointments or by phone at 310-456-2489.
