Anniston’s municipal court has new hours as of Monday, falling in line with previously announced changes to City Hall’s schedule.
The court will be open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., closing a half-hour earlier than before and matching City Hall. According to Jackson Hodges, the city’s public information officer, the new schedule at City Hall will accommodate those with early-morning business, such as contractors and applicants for business licenses.
“We find that not as many people come in between 4 and 5 p.m.,” Hodges wrote in a text message Monday. “However, we’ve gotten a fair amount of requests to be open earlier.”
Hodges confirmed that the court made its change in hours to align with City Hall.
