City Thanksgiving closures
Wednesday, November 22, 2017 by Elizabeth Pagano
This week, city administrative offices and municipal facilities will be closed on Thursday and Friday in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday. Those closures include all City Council offices. Administrative offices and municipal courts will close Wednesday at 3 p.m. through the weekend. All library branches will close Wednesday at 6 p.m. and reopen on Saturday, as will city recreation, cultural arts, nature, history and senior centers. Deep Eddy, Big Stacy, Springwoods and Bartholomew pools will be closed on Thanksgiving Day, though Barton Springs Pool will remain open (without lifeguards!). And, there will be no trash collection on Thursday. That will be pushed to Friday, with Friday collections pushed to Saturday. Questions? Call 311 to find out what will be open and what services will be offered during the Thanksgiving holiday.
