News release

KAUKAUNA — To provide more flexibility and work-life balance for as many staff as possible while still providing great service to our residents, some City of Kaukauna facilities will move summer hours beginning June 1, 2023.

Facilities implementing summer hours include the Municipal Services Building and the Street, Park, and Recreation (SPAR) office, according to a news release from the city.

Municipal Services Building and SPAR office hours will be as follows:

  • Monday – Thursday – 7:30am – 4:30pm
  • Friday – 7:30am – 11:00am

While this new summer schedule does provide more flexibility for staff, it also allows residents the opportunity to take care of business in the early a.m. hours.

Since COVID, many city services are available online. The most common online services include disposal site renewals, building permits, recreational program registrations, and most City fees (dog licenses, parking tickets, etc).

“We recognize the need to be more available to our residents. Though we will be closing at 11 a.m. on Fridays, opening earlier each day at 7:30 a.m. gives our residents more time to visit us for those in-person needs prior to their workday starting,” said Mayor Tony Penterman in the news release. “Employees’ total work hours will not change, but promoting and encouraging the well-being of our staff is critical when it comes to recruitment and retention.”

Summer hours at the Municipal Services Building and SPAR office will start on Thursday, June 1, 2203 and run through Wednesday, Sept. 6, 2023. These adjusted hours do not affect police and fire services. Other municipal facilities, including the Library and 1000 Islands Environmental Center, will not be implementing summer hours at this time.
