We've barely finished with Christmas and it's time to start planning for New Year's. Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013 is a holiday, and governmental agencies, financial institutions and most service businesses are likely to be closed.
Alpharetta will close all of its facilities, including City Hall, the Community Center and the Crabapple Government Center, at noon on Monday, Dec. 31.
Trash pickup in Alpharetta will be on the regular Monday schedule on New Year's Eve, with no delays. No garbage pickup will be done on New Year's Day, which pushes collections forward a day for the rest of the week, with Tuesday pick ups on Wednesday, Wednesday on Thursday and Friday's pick ups on Saturday.
Milton City Hall will be closed Tuesday, Jan. 1 in observance of New Year’s Day. It will reopen on Wednesday, Jan. 2 at 8:30 a.m.
You won't be checking out any books on New Year's Day, either, as the Alpharetta Library branch will be closed. Keep an eye on the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System's blog for actual hours and holidays.
Expect the North Fulton Regional Health Center and Fulton Tax Commissioner's Office in Alpharetta to be closed on New Year's Day as well.
And unless you are doing it online or through an ATM, you'd better make that trip to the bank on Monday or Wednesday.
