Most area government offices and services, including libraries and recreation centers, closed Friday through Monday for the Christmas holiday, with a few exceptions. There will be no bus service on Sunday, which is Christmas Day. Mail delivery will not occur Monday and will resume Tuesday. Parks, beaches and preserves will remain open throughout the holidays. Garbage and yard waste schedules will not be affected by the holiday. Most city hall in the area closed through Monday, too, and in Sarasota, it’s free to park in public slots: parking meters and pay stations will not be enforced.
