Duluth City Offices Open on President's Day

Most Gwinnett offices will be closed since President's Day is a county holiday.

President’s Day is not an official Duluth holiday, so Duluth City Hall and all other city offices will be open on Monday, Feb. 18.

It is a holiday for Gwinnett County, so most county government offices will be closed Feb. 18 on Presidents’ Day. County offices will resume normal business hours Tuesday, Feb. 19.

A Magistrate Court judge will be available at the Gwinnett County Detention Center during the holiday.

Presidents’ Day is not a trash and recycling holiday for solid waste providers in unincorporated Gwinnett County, so trash and recycling collections are scheduled as normal.

The Gwinnett County Solid Waste and Recycling Call Center will be closed that day, but hauler call centers will be open. Residents can visit www.sustainablegwinnett.com to find their hauler’s contact information.

Trash collection for City of Duluth residents will occur on Wednesday as usual.

President’s Day, now celebrated on the third Monday in February, honors present and past Presidents of the United States. Originally it was celebrated as President George Washington’s Birthday on Feb. 22, according to www.history.com, and officially still is the federal name of the holiday.

Established in 1885 as a holiday, the Washington’s Birthday observance was moved as part of the 1971 Uniform Monday Holiday Act to provide more three-day holidays for American workers.

President Abraham Lincoln’s birthday on Feb. 12 is celebrated as a holiday in several states, including Arizona, California, Connecticut, Illinois, Missouri, New Jersey, New York, and Indiana.

President's Day is a state holiday in Georgia.

It is also NOT a State holiday - state govt will be doing the people's business. State Govt in GA takes this holiday and tacks on to Thanksgiving to take the Friday after Turkey Day off.
