Monday will be holiday for some
Independence Day falls on Sunday, July 4, so many businesses will take off Monday, July 5.
The exception will be the South Jetty newspaper, which will close Friday, July 2, and re-open on Monday, July 5.
Closing Monday will be city hall, the water district office, American Bank and ValueBank Texas.
Also, no mail will be delivered to or from the Port Aransas post office on Monday.
While city hall will be closed, services such as collection of trash and recylable materials will continue, and first responders will be on duty.
Most retail businesses that typically are open on Sunday and Monday will remain open throughout the holiday.
