Two Concord facilities restore hours this week

Two City of Concord facilities have announced the resumption of regular offices hours that were reduced during the recession.

Full-day Thursday hours at the Concord Senior Center, 2727 Parkside Circle, return this month. As a budget reduction measure during the recession, the center was slated to close on Thursdays. The Concord Senior Citizens Club volunteered to fund part-time hours (9 a.m. to 1 p.m.). The City Council recently restored funding for the full day - 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. - beginning Feb. 5.

Similarly, the Permit Center, located at Civic Center, 1950 Parkside Drive, has been closed on Friday afternoons, except by appointment. Beginning Friday, Feb. 6, the Building Division will be available to provide plan check review and building permit services Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Last November's passage of measure Q, the continuation of a half-cent sales tax, has brightened the City's financial picture and made the restoration of hours possible. The Senior Center can be reached at (925) 671-3320; the Permit Center's number is (925) 671-3454.
