Coronavirus Update and Resources
Posted on 03/31/2020

The City of Bonney Lake continues to closely monitor this situation. We will post updates and resources on COVID-19 on this web page as available.

On March 11, 2020, Mayor Johnson signed a Proclamation of Emergency for the City of Bonney Lake. The declaration of a state of emergency gives the City greater flexibility to take appropriate actions necessary to combat the emergency for the protection of persons and properties, and to provide appropriate emergency assistance to persons affected. Read the proclamation

In an effort to take proactive measures to protect the health and safety of the community and staff, the City is implementing safety protocols and modifying our services.

The following is an update as of March 26, 2020: 

City offices closed to public access
The Justice & Municipal Center, Police Department, and Public Works Center will be closed to public access through April 6. The Senior Center and Recreation Office is closed in conjunction with the School District closure. We will keep you updated as we reassess the situation. Many of our services are available online.

Department Updates: 

Park Access:
Following a joint meeting between the city of Bonney Lake, city of Sumner, and Sumner-Bonney Lake School District, we have decided to close playground equipment in all City parks until further notice to help stop the spread of COVID-19. The skate park at Allan Yorke Park is also closed. The rest of the parks’ amenities will remain open; however, all users should continue to adhere to social distancing. No more than 10 people at once should be using amenities like the basketball court and all users should maintain at least 6’ distance from each other.

Parks & Facility Reservations: 
We are temporarily suspending new facility and park reservations for an indefinite period of time. As of March 25, all existing park and facility reservations will be cancelled through April 6. We appreciate your understanding. We will update the city’s web page once reservations resume.

Other Services
At this time, claims may be submitted electronically or by mail and will not require a notary of the signature until later. Notary services are currently not available.
