City of Williamsport telephone directories keep existing numbers
Need to reach the city controller, city clerk, or an officer of the law by telephone?
City officials said this week — as City Hall empties due to health and safety concerns following its condemnation — there will be no telephone changes.
In the wake of the relocation of employees from City Hall to Trade and Transit Centres I and II and other city-owned buildings, the administration of Mayor Derek Slaughter said the telephone directories or numbers are going to remain the same to avoid confusion.
“We are keeping the same telephone numbers and switching them over to the new locations,” said Adam Winder, acting director of public works and general manager of River Valley Transit.
Winder said those who need to contact the employees in the various departments should see no difference.
Workers are transitioning over to the transit buildings and other locations throughout the city due to City Hall being condemned because of health and safety risks related to airborne testing for mold, mildew, asbestos and radon.
The city telephone directory starts with the general listing of departments. The departments include public safety (press 1); community and economic development (press 2); human resources (press 3); finance and administration (press 4); public works including recreation and engineer (press 5); mayor (press 6), city clerk, (press 7); controller (press 8); treasurer and tax collector (press 9) and to dial by last name (press pound # and 1). The city also has a direct department office directory.
