Starting Jan. 2, 2019, the St. Clair Street Senior Center will extend its hours of operation to enhance customer service. 

"We are pleased to significantly extend the Senior Center's operating hours for the good of customer service," said Thomas Laird, assistant director of Parks & Recreation. "The Center continues to provide a better quality of life for those aged 60 and older." 

The new operating hours are:

• Saturday, 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.; and
• Sunday, 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.

The new operating hours will be staffed within the existing budgeted allocations through effective scheduling of current Senior Center staff, with a focus on excellent customer service.

In August, The Senior Center was incorporated under the newly created Community Services Division as part a reorganization of the City's administrative structure to enhance customer service.
