As Labor Day is observed on Monday, September 1, 2014, many are wondering what effect it will have on the services they receive.
The United States Post Office will be closed for the day and there will be no home or business delivery. Those with post office boxes either downtown or at the branch on Rochester Road will be able to access their boxes. Vending machines will also be available to dispense stamps and provide other services.
Although trash pickup normally occurs regardless of holidays, Labor Day is an exception. All homes in Rochester Hills will be picked up a day later than normal as trucks will operate Tuesday through Saturday.
Remember that Tuesday also marks the beginning of another school year. Many routes have been altered for the beginning of the year as construction projects have several major roads and intersections closed.
