City facilities, services affected by Thanksgiving holiday


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

City administration offices and several other city facilities will be closed Thursday and Friday in observance of Thanksgiving.

Some city services will have an adjusted schedule because of the holiday. The Roswell Public Library, Roswell Museum and Art Center, and Roswell Visitors Center will each be closed for Thanksgiving Thursday and Friday. The Roswell Adult and Recreation Center will be closed — not only Thanksgiving and Friday — but also Saturday. The Spring River Park and Zoo will be open as usual throughout the week, including Thanksgiving Day.

City bus service and trash pickup will be altered because of the holiday. Pecos Trails Transit buses will not be in service Thanksgiving Day. On Friday, the buses will be in operation only on Main Street. The buses will run from 7:31 a.m. to 10:03 p.m.

The sanitation department’s trash pickup for this week has been adjusted. Areas south of Alameda Street plus areas east of Garden Avenue between Alameda and Second Street (normally picked up Monday and Thursday) will have their trash containers picked up Monday and Wednesday. Other areas north of Alameda (normally picked up Tuesday and Friday) will remain on the normal pickup schedule. Residents with individual roll-out containers must have them placed by the curb the night before the day of service or by 4 a.m. the day of service. The landfill will be closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, but will reopen Saturday.
