Extended Service Hours for Some Kingman Departments
In an effort to streamline customer service, Fire Department Administration and Engineering will be open from 7am-6pm, Monday through Thursday, and closed on Fridays. Inspection services performed by Engineering and the Kingman Fire Department’s Building Division will remain available on Fridays when offices are closed. The new hours begin January 7, 2019.
“This should actually increase our levels of service,” said Kingman Fire Chief Jake Rhoades. “Sometimes when we open at 8 in the morning, we have a line of folks waiting at the door to get in, so hopefully this will alleviate those issues.”
Because these two departments are housed in separate buildings, the city is looking for somewhat of a cost savings with having them closed an extra day during the work week. Although those offices are closed on Fridays, the city would like to reiterate that inspections services from Engineering and the Kingman Fire Department’s Building Division will still be available.
