Kandiyohi County License Bureau Hours Extended 03 Sep 14

Starting September 29th, the Kandiyohi County License Bureau in Willmar will be open until 6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

Officials say extending the hours into the early evening is designed to improve customer service.

A survey in July of clients and staff showed that keeping the office open later than the usual 4:30 p.m. closing time would help meet people’s needs and could reduce the “noon-hour rush” when people try to squeeze in errands during their lunch break, which can result in a line-up at the Driver and Vehicle Services window.

The commissioners approved the extended hours on a one-year trial basis.
