In observance of Independence Day, all city of Troy offices and services will be closed on Thursday, July 4.

Along with city offices being closed, there will also be no sanitation, recycling or grass picked up on July 4. Thursday’s route will be moved up to Wednesday, instead.

All city services will return to regular schedules following July 4.
