City Hall

New Year to bring new hours for some city services

In keeping with a trend among both public and private sector organizations, a variety of city departments will be transitioning to a new weekly work schedule effective Jan. 7, 2020. Namely, the Customer Service counters at City Hall (6800 Main St.) will be open a half hour earlier and a half hour later four days a week: 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. This change will provide customers an additional hour four days a week in which they can come by City Hall to conduct transactions (such as paying utility bills or pulling permits) earlier in the morning or later in the evening. To offset those extensions, the counters will be open 7:30 to 11:30 a.m. Friday. As during any time the counters are closed, customers can still access their accounts online, make a payment via the automated phone system (972-625-2741, option 4), or utilize the drive-thru drop-box on the north side of the building. Please visit our website for more information.

Don't forget: Safety first as holiday shopping season continues

As the holiday shopping season gets into full swing, the anticipation of seeing family, attending parties, and seeing the joy on the faces of little ones begins to grow and grow. Although an exciting time for all of us, we should remember that thieves, pickpockets, burglars and muggers look forward to this season, too. Crooks love this time a year because of all the shopping bags in cars, homes glittering with gifts, and malls and parking lots full of unsuspecting shoppers and gift-givers. With all that in mind, residents are encouraged to check out some holiday safety tips from The Colony Chief of Police David Coulon.
