Burlington Town Hall has new hours for two days of the week.
According to a post on the town web site, Town Hall will now stay open later on Wednesdays and close earlier on Fridays. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday hours will stay the same.
Effective as of Jan. 6, Town Hall, Town Hall Annex and Human Services Operations will change operating hours to include one later day so that the public may have greater access to services. The new hours will be:
- Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays: 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
- Wednesdays: 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.
- Fridays: 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
In a December Board of Selectmen meeting, Town Administrator John Petrin said the extended Wednesday hours were meant to help those residents who cannot make it to Town Hall during the normal hours. The shortened Friday hours were a way to balance the extra hours with town employees.
