Should Town Hall Be Open Five Days a Week?

Share your views in the comments section

Teaneck officials say they are reviewing ways to keep the Municipal Building open on Fridays after critics have long called for the five-day week to be restored. 

Details of any possible changes to the schedule have not been disclosed. The four-day week was first implemented in 2009 and brought extended hours on Tuesdays. 

Opponents of the schedule have said the hours are inconvenient, making it hard to pay tickets and for contractors to do business with the town. 

What do you think? Should Teaneck switch back to a five-day town hall schedule? What schedule would work best for you?

It takes a Teaneck worker a full day to fulfill one record request....... now.. that in itself sounds fishy...... unless the worker is inventing the record...that is the only way anyone can believe why it takes them a day.....

This week and next week are only 3 day weeks because there is a holiday in each and the 4 day week. As the town hall was closed Friday, it will be closed 4 consecutive days before the 10 depts will be open again. True, the town hall will open at 8 am instead of 8:30 on Tuesday. Does that really matter? Give us back our 5 day town hall.

Abolish 4 day work week..... for every township employee... if you can not work... like your bosses (Teaneck tax payers) go take a hike... you are all fired..... But this is Teaneck... the next step would be 2 day work weeks......

I know I am a broken record on this issue about the 4 and 3 day work weeks but, then again, I did not create it. The Council did. Today I learned that a long commute for police officers in Los Angeles is about 40 miles. Our manager's commute is ~65 miles yet the manager heard the Mayor say the Council wants a return to the five day workweek. Let's see what happens.
