Register for classes, check building permit status, pay utility bills, watch BTV10, sign up to bid on City contracts, and research City Council history from 1903 to the present. These services and many more are available at your fingertips on the City website.
The City of Bellingham’s commitment to transparent, accessible government and helpful customer services means we offer an extensive array of documents online. All City contracts, City Council legislative history, ordinances and resolutions, planning and permit notices and more are available.
During the past couple years, we’ve added more opportunities for online services and transactions, such as allowing people to check status of permits and schedule inspections, pay parking tickets and utility bills, register for classes, create custom maps using City databases, and more.
These services provide extra convenience to people interacting with the City. In many cases initiating these services online has resulted in staff efficiencies and other cost savings for City government.
