City hall is closed this week; will re-open January 3

By Jack Dean | Again this year, city hall is closed for the entire week between the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

Last year, after noticing that these closure dates are not listed on the city’s website, I asked then-city manager Joe Felz where the authority for  this closure period came from. This was his response: “City Hall closure dates were enacted by City Council Resolution 9197 (October 17, 2000).  The Resolution provides that specifically designated City offices close annually for the period of December 24 through January 1st.  The closure does not apply to Police and Fire Departments or to certain community facilities (Community Center, parks, Museum, Indy Park, etc.) and for building inspections. Employees must use accrued leave time (typically vacation time) to be paid for these days or they may take unpaid leave.”
