City Hall will be closed on the last business day of the week, which will primarily fall on a Friday. In accordance with the Governor’s Pause, City Hall will be closed to the public from November 30th to December 13th. We continue to encourage the community to safely and securely use the online and mail services that are available on the Pawtucket website. Residents and businesses can still contact City Hall Departments during hours of operation by calling City Hall and its employees, who will continue to work in the building, at 401-728-0500. A drop box is also available outside of City Hall.
