City Hall work areas to receive new keycard access readers beginning this week

Contractors began adding new keycard access readers on doors in City Hall this week. The project is expected to take three to four weeks to complete. Before work starts in your work area, your department liaison will pass along more detailed information about the timing of the installation, access to the area, and next steps in the process.

Once work is complete in your area, your new City photo ID will be your new access card. Until further notice, please continue to carry your white access card for City Hall as you may need it to access other areas of the building until the project is complete. For those of you who use doors with keypads, after the switch you will use your employee ID instead, which has your access embedded.

The goal is to complete installation of the new readers with little to no disruption and ensure that all spaces remain secure. Precautions will be taken to reduce noise and ensure that access for employees and their customers is not impeded. If you have any questions or concerns, check with your department liaison.

When the access readers are all changed in City Hall, keycard access readers for the pedestrian doors to the Federal Building parking ramp and the Towle Building will also be installed.
