Every year the city observes several holidays. These holidays are spread throughout the year and will affect some of the services provided to citizens. For instance, the Solid Waste Services Department will not provide residential waste, recycling, or brush/bulky waste collection on city designated holidays. These services will resume on your next regularly scheduled day.
The holidays for 2013 are:
