Press Release City of Benicia, December 19, 2019 –

City Manager Lorie Tinfow has announced that beginning Friday, January 10, 2020, City Hall will be closed on alternate Fridays when City staff begins working a uniform Alternate Fridays schedule (also known as a 9/80 schedule) at City Hall.

Days of operation will not change for the Benicia Public Library and the Benicia Community Center. The Benicia Police Department lobby will remain open 24 hours a day. Schedules for Police and Fire staff also will not change except that the lobby of Fire Station #11, located on West Military will be closed on the alternating Fridays.

As with many other municipal organizations that are already on the Alternate Fridays schedule, adoption of this schedule is expected to aid in employee recruitment and retention. “Employees consider the Alternate Fridays schedule an attractive benefit, especially those who commute over significant distance or at peak times,” said City Manager Lorie Tinfow. “It’s a no-cost way of helping achieve the City Council’s #1 priority to retain and attract high-quality staff.”

A calendar showing City of Benicia holidays and Alternate Friday closure days will be posted on the City’s website at and at each entrance of City Hall and Benicia Fire Department.

Many City services continue to be available online.
