“This means there is no access to revenue services today, however customers can still access building permits and licences [at 515 West 10th Ave.],” the city said in a news release. “We expect to have power at city hall and be open for regular business hours on Wednesday.”

No council meetings or public hearings were scheduled Tuesday.
