New Braunfels Announces City Service Closures for Memorial Day, Waste Collection to Continue As UsualSource: City of New Braunfels

Get ready to adjust your Memorial Day weekend plans if they include city services in New Braunfels, folks. The city has announced a slew of closures set for May 27, when many of us will be kicking back, remembering the brave and maybe even grilling a hot dog... or three. New Braunfels officials have put out a list that reads like a who's who of local amenities taking a break for the holiday, including City Hall, the Municipal Court, and even the beloved Public Library.

Not sure if you can toss out the trash without causing a stink? Don't fret, as there's no change to residential and commercial garbage and recycling collection—the bins go out, and the trucks will come round as usual, moving on as if it's just another manic Monday. Same goes for the green waste, they'll take those lawn clippings off your hands without missing a beat, so that's one less thing to worry about amid your holiday chaos. And for you golfers out there itching to hit the fairways, the Landa Park Golf Course is operating business as usual, so tee it up!

Some of you may be wondering about Das Rec, the city's recreational hotspot – there's good news and bad. They'll have their doors open, but with "modified hours of operation on Monday, May 27, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.," so plan your sweat sessions accordingly, fitness buffs. As for the rest – the Parks & Recreation administrative offices, Fischer Park Nature Education Center, Solid Waste and Recycling administrative offices, City Recycling Center, Civic & Convention Center, and the Westside Community Center, they're all taking a day off.

Looking for the nitty-gritty on other local spots or need to grill someone with your burning questions about the closures?
