Residents wanting to do business in City Hall will have limited opportunities to do so. As James Mills reported, City Hall operates under a “Modified Friday” schedule every other week of the year, which results in most City Hall employees having those Fridays off. That means, only transactions at the first-floor Permit Parking and Cashier Counters are available. For more information, call 323-848-6392.
The National Weather Service forecasts sunny and mostly clear, with a high near 77 and a low around 49. West Hollywood can expect north wind between 10 and 15 miles per hour becoming calm.
