Most city offices and services are closed for the Labor Day holiday on Monday, Sept. 5.
There are no recycling, bulk trash, yard waste or appliance collections on Monday, Sept. 5. Monday’s collections will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 6 and the collections scheduled for Tuesday will take place on Wednesday, Sept. 7.
The Thursday, Sept. 8 and Friday, Sept. 9 collections are not affected by the holiday.
The garbage can roll back fine of $25, which is in the 2022-2023 city budget, was put on hold for three months, so even those who get the day wrong and leave their garbage and recycling bins out on the street for longer than 24 hours don’t have to worry about a fine, yet. The three-month moratorium on implementing the fines runs through the end of September.
If the City Council doesn’t take action to extend the moratorium, the extremely unpopular fines should start being enforced on Oct. 1.

No sense to labor on “ Labor Day”!
The longer govt stays on holiday, the less damage it can do.
