Union Gap City Hall

Union Gap city Mayor Jim Lemon is no longer allowed in city hall.

City officials say Lemon has been served a no trespass order to all city facilities, except the police station and Ahtanum Youth Park.

Officials say the order was issued after an incident occurred between Lemon and a city employee yesterday afternoon.

Lemon would be subject to arrest and criminal charges if he violates the notice.

Last week, Union Gap voters decided to switch from a strong mayor form of government, currently headed by Lemon, to a strong council/manager form of government at the start of the new year.
