Changes to Government Center Hours of Operation

(FALL RIVER, MA- August 4, 2022)- 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: 8:00am-4:00pm
Friday: 8:00am-3:00pm

These new hours will continue through the foreseeable future. Patrons are still able to use
Baycoast bank locations and online payment methods during both regular business hours and on

“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.”
