Cedar Springs City Hall to try four-day week

Have you ever been frustrated by not being able to get to Cedar Springs City Hall during their regular working hours? The City hopes a change in hours will help people make that stop a little easier.

Currently they are open Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. But starting July 10, they will be open Monday through Thursday, from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

According to City Clerk Rebecca Newland, staff noticed that many customers are unable to come in to City Hall before or after work with their current hours. “We often have community members at the doors waiting for City Hall to open and running in just before close,” she explained. “It is our hope that new extended hours will give individuals the opportunity to be served before or after work.” She also said that very few people go into the office on Fridays.

The utility bill due date policy will stay the same. “Currently if the 7th falls on a Saturday or Sunday, residents have until 5 p.m. the following Monday to pay with no penalty. Beginning July 10, If the 7th falls on a Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, the community will have until 5:30 p.m. the following Monday to pay with no penalty,” explained Newland.

She said the City would try out this schedule over the next few months and make adjustments as needed.   change in business hours will be reevaluated in October of 2017.
