As the nation prepares to honor its fallen heroes on Memorial Day, city officials have outlined a modified schedule for municipal services to accommodate the holiday. In a statement released by the City of San Antonio, most city offices including City Hall will be closed on Monday, May 27, a move reflecting the city's observance of Memorial Day.

Despite the closures, essential services such as police, fire, and EMS will continue their vigil, ensuring the public safety is not compromised during the holiday. The city's 3-1-1 Call Center is set to maintain operations from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with special hours from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. catering to urgent matters such as animal concerns and traffic signal malfunctions, according to the City's announcement.

Recreational opportunities will not be in short supply as preseason pools welcome swimmers from 1 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Memorial Day. City parks and trails invite the public to engage in outdoor festivities, maintaining open status, albeit with limited fitness and park classes available. The parking enforcement officers, taking a break, will bestow a meter holiday upon downtown visitors, although this generosity does not extend to off-street garages and lots operated by the city, as stated on the City's official website.

San Antonio residents wishing to stay cool can do so at various facilities open specifically for this purpose from 12 p.m. to 8 p.m. These sites include numerous libraries and select senior as well as community centers, ensuring citizens have places to retreat from the heat. For those needing to dispose of waste, the garbage, recycling, and organics collection services will proceed as per the regular schedule, whereas the Bitters Brush site and other waste drop-off centers will take a day off on Monday, as the announcement confirmed.

Certain closures will impact those seeking cultural enrichment and administrative services as the downtown Central Library, the majority of community centers, and several offices ranging from Metro Health clinics to the Office of Historic Preservation will not be operational. The announcement also specified that SAPD's Administration and Records Section, SAFD Administrative Offices, and Pre-K 4 SA Education Centers are among the numerous closures, reminding citizens to plan their errands accordingly.
