City of Nanaimo will close Sept. 19 to honour Queen Elizabeth II

The City of Nanaimo will close Sept. 19 to observe the Day of Mourning for the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.

The decision to observe the day of mourning recognizes the impact Her Majesty's life and example have had on Canadians, most of whom have known only one monarch.

Because of the City's closure, the Council Meeting scheduled for Sept. 19, will be rescheduled to Sept. 21 at 9 am.

This Special Council meeting will include the agenda items from the Finance and Audit Committee, formerly scheduled for that day.

Nanaimo recreation centres will be closed on Sept. 19.

Public works will continue to collect garbage, organics and recycling as scheduled. Recycling and organics will be collected from Zone 10 and garbage and organics will be collected from Zone 5. As usual, please have your bins out by 8am.
