City Staff

If you’re looking for help with city services or want to discuss an issue, the City of Riverdale’s staff is happy to help. It’s best to contact by phone during regular business hours (Monday – Friday between 8am and 5pm). Calls made to the mayor are typically returned within one business day.

Email messages are usually answered within 24 hours.

“Walk-in hours” for the general public are from 10am to 5pm. If you need to meet with staff members or elected officials outside of those hours, please call or email and set an appointment.
