Reminder to Residents: Columbus Day is Not an Official Montgomery County Holiday; Ride On, Most Services to Operate on Normal Weekday Schedule

Residents are reminded that Montgomery County government and Montgomery County Public Schools do not observe Columbus Day on October 14 as an official County holiday. Most Montgomery County services will operate and facilities will be open on that day. Because the State of Maryland and the Federal Government do observe the holiday, state and federal offices and courts in Montgomery County will be closed.

Residents are urged to remember to pay parking fees that day at Montgomery County-owned public garages, lots and curbside meters. Among the services that will operate on normal, Monday, weekday schedules are Ride On; refuse/recycling pickups; and County liquor stores.

For more information, call 311, or visit the County’s website.
