July 4 closings, solid-waste and deadline changes include Gazette

Most businesses, including the New Albany Gazette, and all governmental offices will close Friday, July 4, in observance of Independence Day.

Because the holiday is on a Friday, the publication schedule for the Gazette will change as well.

For the Wednesday, July 2, issue, the ad deadline will be 5 p.m. Thursday, June 26 and the news deadline will be 5 p.m. Friday, June 27.

For the Friday, July 4 issue, the ad deadline will be 5 p.m. Monday, June 30, and the news deadline will be 5 p.m. Tuesday, July 1.

The Wednesday paper will be printed Monday but distributed in the mail Wednesday as usual. The Friday paper will be printed Wednesday, however, and distributed in the mail Thursday.

City solid-waste pickup will change due to the holiday also with both Thursday and Friday, July 3 and 4 routes, being picked up Thursday.

In the county, the only change will be for the Friday route, which will be collected Wednesday, July 2, instead.
