President’s Day: What’s open, what’s closed

Monday, February 20 is President’s Day, a federal holiday, which means government-run businesses have the day off, while many local businesses opt to stay open.

County government service buildings will all be closed for the federal holiday,  including county courthouses and the Mankato Driver and Exam Station. The U.S. Postal Service is also closed and will not be delivering mail.

Public schools and most private schools are shut down for President’s Day, although the day is often used to make up for unexpected missed days.

Retail stores make their own schedule on federal holidays, so it’s best to call ahead to get the schedule for a specific store.

Here are a few specifics from the cities of Mankato & North Mankato:


CLOSED – City offices

Garbage and recycling pickup and city bus service will continue as scheduled.

Online 24-hour services will be available

North Mankato

CLOSED – City Hall and the North Mankato Taylor Library.

Garbage and recycling collection will continue as scheduled.
