Update: Duluth City Hall to remain closed through Monday

Wednesday’s water leak is forcing a longer closure at Duluth City Hall.

The City says the building will remain closed through at least Monday, January 2 to employees and the public. Monday is also the observed New Year’s holiday, meaning all City facilities will also be closed to the public on January 2.

According to the City, a contractor accidentally hit a water pipe while working inside the building, which caused the leak. Staff say they have made good progress to fix the leak, and anticipate City Hall to reopen on Tuesday, January 3, barring any repair delays.

The City says staff who are able to will be working remotely during the closures.
