Santa Barbara City Hall, De la Guerra Plaza entrance

Conducting Business at the City of Santa Barbara

After adapting to an evolved work environment due to the pandemic while maintaining public service, City offices have been and continue to be open for business. The Business Office/Cashier where community members can conduct transactions, like pay a utility bill, is open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Because City Hall is closed every other Friday, most staff work a 9/80 shift, or 9 hours a day instead of the standard 8-hour-day.

Even when City Hall is closed, the community can still take care of many of its business and service needs by mail, phone, or online. Find out what works best for you here
