Monterey Park, Calif. March 25, 2014 The City of Monterey Park is pleased to announce that beginning April 1, 2014 city hall hours will return to a five day work week. City hall will be open every Monday through Thursday from 7:30 a.m.–5:30 p.m. and every Friday from 7:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m.
For the past three plus years, city hall has been closed on Fridays, due to a 10% furlough of general employees because of the recession. The furloughs, as well as other employee concessions, represented a savings to the city’s funds in excess of a million dollars annually.
The city’s financial circumstances had required significant cooperation from all of the city’s employee groups. The mayor and city council would like to acknowledge and thank all of the labor groups for coming to the table and agreeing to help the city during these challenging fiscal times.
