Practically everyone from employed to unemployed knows that the first Monday in September is Labor Day, with most everything except retailers closed. However, according to City of Dallas Public Information Officer Jose Torres, it’s also César E. Chávez Day. Very interesting.
Well, the rest of the country celebrates César E. Chávez Day on March 31, but we evidently do it differently in Big D. According to Jose, that’s the way it’s been for a while.
Another thing you might not know is that the City of Dallas has selected Friday, August 31, as a Mandatory City Leave Day.The Friday closure means some city departments will be closed for four days (Friday, August 31-Monday, September 3).
Now, don’t go worrying that there will be no firemen or policemen on duty. You really didn’t think that did you? Nah!
But if you have a need that deals with the City of Dallas, you might want to check before you head out.
