City Hall adjusts its hours beginning June 24

From page A9 | June 21, 2013 |

Beginning Monday, Davis City Hall will switch to new hours designed to enhance customer service and save energy at the same time, city officials announced.

City Hall, 23 Russell Blvd., will be open Mondays through Thursdays from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. and alternating Fridays from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Offices will be closed every other Friday. The first day city offices will be closed is Friday, July 5.

In the 9/80 schedule, employees work eight nine-hour days and one eight-hour day and have one day off during the two-week period, a news release explained. Employees continue to work an average of 40 hours per week as a traditional schedule.

Having employees work nine-hour days will allow offices to remain open to the public one hour longer Mondays through Thursdays, “providing greater customer service to the public and reducing the need for citizens to take time off work to conduct city business,” the news release said.

In addition, the new schedule will:

* Reduce air pollution impact by 26 fewer round-trip commutes per employee per year, thereby decreasing greenhouse gas emissions;

* Produce facility energy savings;

* Enhance new employee recruitment and retention of current employees; and

* Reduce absenteeism by giving employees a day off during the week to schedule doctor’s appointments and personal errands.

The Community Services Department, which includes recreation, facility reservations and child care services at 600 A St. adjacent to City Hall, will continue on a traditional schedule of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays.

Public works inspectors will continue to do inspections every Friday for current projects, then transition to no inspections on the closed Fridays, for new projects.

Police and fire operations, parks and other maintenance functions will not be affected by the change, the release said.

City Hall will be closed the following Fridays in 2013: July 5, 19; Aug. 2, 16, 30; Sept. 13, 27; Oct. 11, 25; Nov. 8, 22; and Dec. 6, 20.
