Next week, all city administrative offices will be closed for Labor Day, and some offices will be closed for the annual city team picnic.
All offices will be closed on Monday, Sept. 3, in observance of Labor Day. Battle Creek Transit bus and van services will not run on Labor Day, resuming regular weekday schedules on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Waste Management – the city’s trash, recycling, and yard waste hauler – also is closed on Monday. This will result in a one-day service delay the rest of the week.
On Thursday, Sept. 6, City Hall and the Department of Public Works will close from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. to allow city teammates to enjoy our annual picnic together.
The city team encourages everyone to enjoy the final weekend of Flash Flood Water Park for this season – the outdoor/indoor pools and attractions will be open noon-6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, and noon-6 p.m. Monday – the final opening day – with free admission from 3-6 p.m. for Community Appreciation Day.
The Full Blast facility, fitness center, and walking track will be closed Sunday and Monday, Sept. 2 and 3, as well as Friday through Sunday, Sept. 7-9, for annual maintenance and gym floor resurfacing. Recreation facility fall/winter hours begin on Monday, Sept. 10 – 6:30 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
Please plan your city business accordingly around these closures. Best wishes for a great academic year to everyone involved in going back to school!
