Public access will be allowed Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday from 7:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. The front lobby is closed to the public on Sundays.
The non-emergency phone lines will remain open seven days a week between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. and can be reached by calling (417) 864-1810.
