Since 2011, City staff has been required to use floating holiday or other leave benefits to facilitate a winter holiday closure. To that end, all La Palma City offices (City Hall, Recreation, Public Works, and Police Administration) will be closed starting December 21, 2018, and will re-open January 2, 2019. The Police Department is always open for emergency services or for other matters requiring an urgent response from the City, such as water leaks.
Customers wishing to pay their municipal utility (water) bill during the break are encouraged to use the online portal at www.edcodisposal.com (click Pay Your Bill at the top of the page), call EDCO at 714-522-3577, or use the dropbox located outside City Hall.
Trash Collection Services
Trash collection services will be disrupted on December 25 and January 1. Trash collection will be pushed back one day throughout these periods; for example, Monday’s collection will occur on Tuesday, Tuesday’s collection on Wednesday, etc. Park Disposal will also be collecting holiday trees for recycling during this two week period using a separate collection truck.
Street sweeping services will be cancelled during New Year’s week. Street sweeping will resume on Monday, January 7, 2019.
Please have a safe and joyous holiday season and a Happy New Year!
