Both Dearborn and Dearborn Heights will close their city halls, district courts, and libraries Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Canfield Community Center and Richard A. Young Recreation Center will close on Jan. 20, as well as Berwyn and Eton Senior Citizen Centers, according to the Dearborn Heights mayoral office, though it added that only the governmental offices will be closed while the police and fire departments “are always open.”
Dearborn will close the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center in the Senior Center section, but the rest of the facility at 15801 Michigan Ave. will remain open for its normal 5:30 a.m.-10 p.m. schedule. Both the Dearborn Ice Skating Center (DISC), 14900 Ford Road; and the Canfield Ice Arena, 2100 Kinloch St.; will be open as usual on Monday. However, there will not be public skating or skating classes on that day, because the DISC ice will be taken by a private showcase, and Canfield will be hosting a tournament all weekend (since the hours scheduled by the DISC will vary from month to month, call 943-4098 for information on when the ice is available).
Curbside pick-up has been suspended for Martin Luther King Jr. Day in Dearborn Heights, so the trash should be placed on the curb one day later than usual throughout the week. However, curbside trash and recycling pick-up in Dearborn will keep to its regular schedule for the week of Jan. 20-24 (which will be recycling week “A”). Jessica Carrera in the Department of Public Information said that decision to not do pick-up in Dearborn on the holidays, and to set a normal schedule for Martin Luther King Jr. and Presidents Days, is made by Republic Services.
