The city’s offices will be closed on Wednesday, June 19 in observance of Juneteenth.

Despite the closure, both residential and commercial recycling and trash pick up routes will run on their regular schedule.

Juneteenth, which recognizes the effective end of slavery in the U.S., was added to the city’s calendar of official paid holidays in 2021 when the City Council approved a proposal that also makes the holiday a paid day off for city employees.Under the law, city offices will close annually on June 19. If the holiday falls on a Saturday, offices will close the Friday before, and if it falls on a Sunday, offices will close the Monday after.
