Trying to visit City of Minneapolis buildings on Monday? You might want to wait one more day.
Monday is Columbus Day, and while most of Southwest Minneapolis couldn't care less, city offices will be closed in recognition of the federal holiday. In addition, city parking meters will be turned off, but meters owned by the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board and the University of Minnesota will stay in operation.
However, you can still put your garbage and recycling out on the usual days this week. The holiday will not impact pick-up schedules, but the main help line will not be staffed on Monday.
Fire, police, and 911 service will, of course, continue to operate as normal.
