(Beaver Dam) The hours are changing at city hall in Beaver Dam. Starting on January 1, the municipal building will be open from 7:30am until 4pm. Following common council action this week, the doors will close a half hour earlier. City Director of Administration Zak Bloom says the change will reduce or eliminate the need for compensatory time and overtime. The move will also allow for full coverage of city hall services as there is currently one person staffing the clerk’s office and finance department at the beginning and the end of the day. The municipal building house the City Clerk’s Office, Finance Department, Engineering Department, and Inspection Services.
