Kelowna City Hall will be closed for the holidays from Friday, Dec. 25 until Monday, Jan. 4, 2016.
“We’ve found that very few people do business at City Hall during the holiday season,” says Stu Leatherdale, Human Resources & Corporate Performance Divisional Director. “This closure creates an opportunity for staff to spend time with their families, while being economical for the City because staff account for days off during the closure with vacation time and hours from other earned leave banks.”
Essential City services such as police, fire, water, wastewater treatment and snow removal will remain in operation.
Parkinson Recreation Centre will be closed Dec. 25 and 26. The centre will be open New Year’s Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Glenmore Landfill will be closed Dec. 25, 26 and Jan. 1, open to commercial only on Dec. 26, with the landfill office closed Dec. 25 until Jan. 4.
For water, sewer, parks, roads, snow removal and after hour inquiries contact the Civic Operations’ call centre at 250-469-8600.
Residents wishing to make payments or do business with the City (e.g. renew a business licence – due Jan. 15) over the closure can come in before the holidays or visit kelowna.ca/onlineservices for 24/7 online options.
