Nashua City Hall will fully reopen to the public on Monday, June 7. For the past year, throughout the pandemic, all essential city services have remained available to residents by way of regular mail, dropbox, online and by phone, as well as limited entry into City Hall for some departments. With the full reopening of City Hall, all departments offering in-person services will accept walk-in customers and those with appointments during regular business hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. (hours may differ among departments for some services).
Mayor Jim Donchess, along with public health and emergency management officials continue to monitor and respond to the COVID-19 virus. Safety protocols and helpful signage are in place for members of the public who enter City Hall, including that individuals who are not vaccinated are encouraged to wear a face mask for the protection of others. The City of Nashua has rescinded its mask ordinance, so individuals who are fully vaccinated are no longer required to wear a face mask.
City Hall Construction
Nashua City Hall is currently under construction. Improvements are being made to enhance the health and safety of residents and city employees. Construction will continue through the month of June. Residents entering City Hall are asked to enter through either the front or back door to the building (Elm Street entrance), follow instructions on signage and to be mindful of construction areas.
