ANN ARBOR – The city of Ann Arbor has announced that all municipal offices, including Larcom City Hall’s customer service center, will close on Monday, Oct. 10 in observance of Indigenous Peoples’ Day.

The 15th Judicial District Court at the Ann Arbor Justice Center will also be closed in honor of the holiday.

Utility operations and safety services will continue to operate 24 hours a day.

No interruptions will made to regular city curbside trash, recycling and compost pick up on Monday.

Indigenous Peoples’ Day, which coincides with Columbus Day, was formally proclaimed a federal holiday by President Joe Biden on Oct. 8, 2021.

“Since time immemorial, American Indians, Alaska Natives, and Native Hawaiians have built vibrant and diverse cultures — safeguarding land, language, spirit, knowledge, and tradition across the generations,” reads Biden’s proclamation. “On Indigenous Peoples’ Day, our Nation celebrates the invaluable contributions and resilience of Indigenous peoples, recognizes their inherent sovereignty, and commits to honoring the Federal Government’s trust and treaty obligations to Tribal Nations.”
