ALABAMA:     On Wednesday, June 19, 2024, most all Alabama Municipalities, County Government, State and Federal offices will be closed.

This is in observance of Juneteenth Day.

Juneteenth, officially Juneteenth National Independence Day, is a federal holiday in the United States. It is celebrated annually on June 19 to commemorate the ending of slavery in the United States. The holiday's name is a portmanteau of the words "June" and "nineteenth", as it was on June 19, 1865, when Major General Gordon Granger ordered the final enforcement of the Emancipation Proclamation in Texas at the end of the American Civil War. Although this date commemorates enslaved people learning of their freedom under the Emancipation Proclamation, this only applied to former Confederate states. There remained legally enslaved people in states that never seceded from the Union. These people did not gain their freedom until the ratification of the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution on December 6, 1865.

Houston County works a four day work week. This means the Houston County Administrative Building and "County" employees will work three days this week. The Administrative Building will be open Monday, Tuesday, closed Wednesday, open Thursday and closed Friday.

Sanitation will run as scheduled
