City, State, Federal Government:
The El Paso County Courthouse and all state and federal offices will be closed.
It will be business as usual, however, at City Hall and all city run departments. The city libraries will remain open, as will all city Sports Centers and Aquatic Centers, recreation centers, senior centers and daycare operations. The El Paso Zoo’s admission gate hours will not be affected either.
Bus routes will not be affected; Sun Metro will be operating on a regular weekday schedule.
Banks and Postal Service:
Presidents’ Day is a U.S. Postal Holiday so the post office lobby will be closed and you won’t get any mail delivery either. And because the day is a federal holiday, it’s a bank holiday too so any banking will have to be conducted online or at an ATM.
Malls and retail stores will not be taking the day off, which means you can shop-till-you-drop and take advantage of savings on all kinds of holiday sales – because nothing is more American than discounted mattresses and electronics!
