Time changes in Prattville as summer nears

Posted by: Matthew Russell

PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) - It's nearly summer time and the city of Prattville is gearing up for some time changes. Prattville Mayor, Jim Byard Jr. announced Thursday that sanitation crews will begin their garbage pick-ups an hour earlier than usual starting Monday, June 14th.

"Temperatures and humidity levels are high by mid-morning, so this time change allows our men to start when it's cooler and will allow them to finish their routes sooner," Byard said. The new schedule will only last until Labor Day (September 7th). 

Also changing: Prattville City Hall business hours. That change happens on the same day as the garbage pickup time shift. City Hall will be open from 7:00am until 6:00pm  Monday through Thursday. City offices will be closed on Fridays. This change will be in effect until Monday, August 9, 2010, when normal business hours resume (8:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday).

"Our summer work schedule traditionally helps ease the energy burden on employees and allows the City to reduce energy costs," said Mayor Byard. 

"Police, Fire, Leisure Services, Sanitation, Vehicle Maintenance and Wastewater are departments that already work non-traditional hours, so their schedules will be unaffected by the changes", he continued. 

The Mayor's office and Municipal Court will be open each Friday.  Departments adhering to the new schedule are:           

            City Clerk's Office
            Engineering
            Planning
            Finance
            Police Administrative Offices
            Fire Administrative Offices
            Streets
            Information Technology
