Council adopts initiative to increase diversity of employees at Windsor city hall

If you need to do business with the City of Windsor, you'll have a new place to do so.

The old city hall closed last Friday, and crews spent the holiday weekend moving files and other items over to the new building next door.

The new city hall officially opens at noon on Tuesday.

Stacey Maguire has overseen the move from the old city hall next door, into the new building. She said the 280 city staff will spend the morning getting set up at their new workplace.

"We are going to have a number of staff, a huge contingent of staff from our IT department and from our facilities department here, walking every floor and talking to people right first thing in the morning," said Maguire, adding that computers, phones and IT services are first priority.

"We will make sure that those service desks are running up and running, even if we do have any complications in the back of house because ultimately we want to be ready for the public first and foremost."

It took two years to build the new city hall at a cost of $30 million. The old city hall next door will be torn down in the coming months.

The first council meeting in the new building is scheduled for next Monday. There will be public tours this Saturday.
