Local government agencies taking extra day off for Independence Day

WINSTON/MARION - With July 4, falling on a Thursday this year, many governmental agencies are taking Friday, July 5, as a holiday, too.
After Governor Kay Ivey’s announcement that state employees would have an extra day off in observance of Independence Day, all area town and city halls followed suit and will be closed Friday as well.   This includes Addison, Arley, Bear Creek, Double Springs, Haleyville and Lynn. In addition, all offices in the courthouse will be closed.  Operations will resume as normal on Monday, July 8.
Federal offices will be closed Thursday, July 4, only.  The U.S. Post Office will also only be closed on Thursday, July 4.
The Winston County Sanitation Department will be closed Thursday, July 4.  Route changes are as follows:; Routes 17 and 18, Wednesday, July 3 and Route 20, Friday, July 5.
Please remember to have your garbage out by 6 a.m. on your pickup day.  Garbage placed outside after that time will be picked up on the next collection day.
The Haleyville Street and Sanitation Department will be closed both Thursday, July 4, and Friday, July 5, for the holiday.  Thursday’s garbage routes will be picked up on Wednesday, July 3, along with the normal Wednesday routes.  Friday’s garbage routes will be picked up on Monday, July 8, along with the normal Friday route.
