The space could use some sprucing up. There's no furniture or, well, many people – but Mayor-elect Jean Stothert's transition office in City Hall is open for business.
The office space, just down the hall from outgoing Mayor Jim Suttle's permanent workspace, will be staffed from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, Stothert's team said Wednesday.
Stothert officials got the keys to the space this week and have since worked to connect phone lines, Internet connections and email and voicemail accounts. Stothert will use the space through her June 10 inauguration.
The public can reach the transition office at 402-996-8328 or email@example.com.
“It is great to have the transition office up and running, giving Omahans a direct line of communication to the transition process,” Stothert said in a statement. “We've been working hard to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible, and we are ready to hit the ground running on June 10th and begin the work of making a Omaha a safer and more prosperous city.”
