Email News Alerts

The Ottertail city offices will soon close at noon on Fridays.

Citing little activity during Friday afternoons, and increased early morning visitors, city staff proposed the idea of altering the city hall schedule at a May 7 city council meeting.


"There are a lot more people coming in at 7:30," city clerk Linda Bjelland said of the morning rush.

Bjelland also noted that the city of Perham has, for years, closed at noon on Fridays.
