[ARCHIVED] Petersburg Government Offices Closed in Observance of Juneteenth

On Tuesday, June 16th, Governor Ralph Northam announced his intentions to mark Juneteenth as a permanent paid state holiday, starting by giving state employees a day off this Friday, June 19th.


Juneteenth is the oldest known commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States. It marks the day in 1865 that enslaved people in Galveston, Texas, the last of the former Confederate states to abolish slavery, finally heard that the Civil War had ended, and learned that the Emancipation Proclamation had made them free nearly two years earlier.


As Petersburg City Council passed a resolution in June 2019 to adopt the Commonwealth of Virginia’s Holiday Calendar, City of Petersburg Government Offices will also be closed on Friday, June 19, 2020. 


Closed offices include: City Hall, City Hall Annex, Fiscal Management Building, Parks & Leisure Services, Blandford Cemetery Records Office, Petersburg Public Library, Petersburg Social Services, Petersburg Area Transit (PAT) Administrative Offices and Customer Service, and Petersburg Freedom Support Center.    


Greyhound Office and Petersburg Area Transit will continue usual bus service on June 19th. Dogwood Trace Golf Course (www.dogwoodtracegolf.com) will remain open on Friday, June 19th.


Central Virginia Waste Management Authority (CVWMA) residential recycling and trash collections will remain on regular schedule.
