City of Sultan COVID-19 Update for March 23, 2020

As you might have seen or heard, Governor Jay Inslee issued a “stay at home” order tonight. This order directs everyone to stay at home with the exception of essential personnel and activities. The order will last at least 2 weeks. Limited activities such as grocery shopping and medical visits are considered essential and allowed with social distancing measures like staying 6 feet away from others. Outside activities are also allowed like running, walking, and biking with social distancing measures.

In addition to the Governor’s directive, the City of Sultan is announcing the following measures which go into effect on Tuesday, March 24:

City playground equipment and recreation facilities are closed. This includes the playground equipment at Osprey Park and Reese Park, the basketball court at Osprey, and the skate park. The City’s trail system will remain open for residents to use responsibly, avoiding large groups and contact with others.

City Hall is closed to the public. Only essential city personnel will continue to work in City facilities to ensure that water, sewer, and garbage utilities continue to operate. Certain personnel will work remotely to ensure that the City is accessible to residents for their needs. Please be patient as we respond with limited staffing. Utility payments can be made online at or via the dropbox in the downstairs lobby. You can call City Hall at 360-793-2231 or email with any questions.

Utility shut offs are suspended for 60 days. I authorized an emergency policy in conjunction with the emergency order signed last week suspending shut offs for non-payment and late fees due to COVID-19. Payment arrangements will be made to help residents pay their balance. Please contact the City Utility Billing Department to make arrangements by contacting City Hall.

We are continuing to monitor the situation and make adjustments as necessary. Please do not hesitate in reaching out to me at with questions or concerns.
