Once a month, citizens have the opportunity to meet for coffee with the police chief (of course, anytime you have a question or concern you can contact the police department directly.)  “Coffee with the Chief” takes place on the third Wednesday of each month at 5:30pm at the Granite Falls Fire Station, 116 S. Granite.  Ring the doorbell to be admitted.

The Granite Falls community has an electronic sign at the State Route 92 entrance into town.  The sign has been in the works for more than two years, and will serve as a communication tool for the City, Fire District, and School District.  Examples of announcements include:  burn bans, flooding, school closures, special school events, City and community events.
