PITTSBURG, KS – Pittsburg City Hall has undergone a significant facelift, following the completion of its City Hall Plaza – Front Steps & Ramp Project. The front entrance to City Hall is now open after an extensive exterior renovation and accessibility improvements.
“The previous steps to the front entrance were deteriorated and the exterior needed updated and preserved,” said Pittsburg City Manager Daron Hall. “With the help of our team, we were able to protect the structure, improve the aesthetics, and increase safety and accessibility to this important public asset.”
The City of Pittsburg partnered with Sprouls Construction, Inc., and Echelon Architecture and Design to make City Hall more ADA compliant. Façade improvements were also included in the project, as well as landscaping by In the Garden. Funding for the renovation comes from American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) federal relief grants.
Additionally, City Hall is extending service hours and will now be available to assist customers over the phone from 7:30 am – 5:30 pm, Monday through Friday, allowing residents extra time to start or stop water service, pay their utility bill, and register for various city services.
In-person Customer Service hours at City Hall will remain 8:00 am and to 5:00 pm, due to security and staffing availability.
The mission of the City of Pittsburg is to provide exceptional services, facilities and activities with integrity, professionalism, excellent customer service and a commitment to economic vitality.
