In an effort to reduce the City’s deficit further, the City Council approved changing the policy of having the City Hall stay open on Wednesdays until 6 p.m. This change will take effect on Wed., Oct. 22.
The policy was originally established more than 20 years ago to give residents some extra time after work to take care of their personal business at City Hall. With the increased usage of the Internet to pay fines and to download permit applications from the City’s website, the number of residents showing up after-hours on Wednesdays has dwindled in recent years.
Regular operating hours for City Hall are now 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.
