(FALL RIVER, MA- August 4, 2022)- According to the Mayor’s Office, the hours of operation at Government Center are set to change following a ratification vote from AFSCME employees in late July.
Effective Monday, August 15th, 2022, building hours at Government Center will be as follows.
Monday through Thursday: 8:00 a.m.-4:00 p.m.
Friday: 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
These new hours will continue through the foreseeable future, according to a statement. Patrons are still able to use Baycoast bank locations and online payment methods during both regular business hours and on nights/weekends.
“Since COVID-19, we have seen a shift in the way residents use Government Center,” said Mayor Paul Coogan. “While we have seen more people take advantage of remote payment
options, there is still a heavy flow of traffic in the mornings. The new hours allow us to accommodate residents who want to get their business done early in the day, while also making a change that many employees advocated for.”
