York City's Bureau of Permits, Planning and Zoning announced Wednesday that it will expand its Friday hours to meet customer demand.

The added hours are an effort to improve customer service at the permit counter, especially for people hoping to complete weekend projects, according to a news release.

The counter will now be open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Previously, the counter closed at 1:30 p.m. on Fridays.
