Banning residents wishing to take care of city business earlier in the morning can do so beginning next month, officials announced Wednesday.
According to Bill Manis, director of economic development for the city, the new hours will commence on April 1.
From Monday through Thursday, the facilities will now be open from 7 a.m. until 5 p.m., Manis said. City Hall will remain closed on Fridays.
Currently, it doesn't open until 8 a.m., so residents will be gaining an extra four hours of access.
"The City is pleased to offer our residents, local contractors, and other clientele doing business with the City an extra hour each day to take care of their City related business," said Mayor Deborah Franklin.
Frankiln said the additional open time doesn't cost anything more for taxpayers, since they're just shifting workers' schedules.
"City staff is already working 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, we simply want to increase the level of service we offer our clientele,” she said.
