While most offices will be closed, many services will continue to be available, including harbor patrol, building inspections, and critical repair services for streets, water, sewer, and parks. The 9-1-1 dispatch service for police and fire emergencies will continue operating during this time. LiveScan fingerprinting will not be conducted during the closure period and will resume on January 7.

The City’s airport, marina, and public parking lots will remain open. The Central Library, Eastside Library, Golf Club, Los Baños Pool, and Cabrillo Bathhouse will be open to the public during most of the holiday period. The public is advised to check the schedule for observed holidays and special holiday hours.

Water, sewer, and trash bill payments can be mailed, dropped off at City Hall, or paid online on the City’s website. Payments will be processed and credited to accounts throughout the closure period. Cash payments will be accepted at the Cashier’s Office at City Hall through December 20 or when offices reopen on January 2.
