City services (and us!) to close for Presidents Day
Friday, February 12, 2021 by Elizabeth Pagano
Yesterday, some city services – parks and curbside pickup – were disrupted due to inclement weather. With the threat of winter weather continuing through next week, Austinites can stay on top of park closures by visiting the parks department online. Anyone whose curbside service was disrupted by the weather is asked to leave their items to be collected out, with an assurance that they will not be cited by the Code Department. Numerous, non-weather closures are planned for Monday due to the Presidents Day holiday. A full list of those closures can be found here. Though the Austin Monitor isn’t much impacted by unseasonably cold weather, aside from not liking it much, we will be taking a break from publishing on Monday and will return on Tuesday.
