City of Dodge City to Change Public Hours

DODGE CITY, Ks. — The City of Dodge City is set to change the hours of public offices, beginning May 31 to 7:30 am – 5:30 pm, Monday through Thursday, and 7:30 am – 11:30 am on Fridays. This change includes City Hall, Municipal Court, Convention &Visitors Bureau Administration offices, and Economic Development offices.

“By opening 30 minutes earlier and staying open 30 minutes later on Monday through Thursday, residents have an opportunity to conduct business before or after their 8 am to 5 pm schedule,” said City Manager Nick Hernandez. “To make this customer-service initiative budget-neutral for taxpayers, we will reduce the hours on Fridays.”

Alternative options to pay utility bills include a cash/check dropboxon the north side of City Hall, a bill pay kiosk that accepts cash/check/card inside the main entrance of Village Square Mall, and an after-hours phone line at 1-877-695-7488, and an online web-payment portal at

“We understand this transition may have an adjustment period, but we remain dedicated to being there for our customers and serving the community in a way that is beneficial for all,” Hernandez said.

An ongoing FAQ regarding the hours’ change will be available on the City of Dodge City website. For additional department hours and staff contact information, visit
