The Corporation of Hamilton will relocate its administrative offices out of City Hall this month to facilitate renovations.

A spokeswoman said they will relocate to office space across from Point House, near the ferry terminal, starting on January 16.

“Services affected (will) include EasyPark top-ups and parking voucher purchases, collection of disabled parking permits, insurance and City tax payments, tender collection and drop-offs and any other administrative services offered to the public,” she added.

And 15-minute parking bays would be set up near the temporary offices as well.

As of January 11, all corporation board and committee meetings, which are normally held in the Mayor’s parlour, will be held in the training room at the City Works Depot, on Laffan Street.

The City Hall office will be closed on January 13 for the transition.

The building, which is more than 60 years old, requires new plumbing, electrical and ventilation systems, according to Chris Bulley, the City’s Assistant Engineer.

“We will also take the opportunity to reconfigure and upgrade the interior office space to better suit the administrative needs of the City,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Bermuda National Gallery, the Bermuda Society of Arts and the Earl Cameron Theatre will remain open.

The renovations are expected to be completed by the end of April.
