  2. Administrative Offices Closed

    October 27, 2017, All Day

    The City of Menlo Park participates in a "compressed work week" schedule in which a regular full-time two-week work schedule of 80 hours is compressed into eight nine-hour days and one eight-hour days within a two-week period (9/80).

    This results in longer business hours throughout the week (7:30 am to 5:30 pm Mon-Thu) with administrative offices closed every other Friday. This schedule reduces traffic congestion by eliminating at least one round-trip commute trip (both home-to-work and work-to-home) every two weeks.
