Memorial Day, originally called Decoration Day, is a day of remembrance for those who have died in service of the United States of America. Memorial Day was borne out of the Civil War and a desire to honor our dead. It was officially proclaimed on 5 May 1868 by General John Logan, national commander of the Grand Army of the Republic, in his General Order No. 11.
City Hall offices and the Maricopa Public Library will be closed Monday, May 25, in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. Offices and the Library will resume regular hours of operation on Tuesday, May 26.

A maintenance "splash" notice will appear to inform any visitors of the temporary outage.

Many residents think that leaving the garage door open a few inches during the summer months alleviates some of the extreme temperatures inside. This is not only false but it actually allows for additional heat to enter and creates an opportunity for burglars as well.
Every garage is finished with 2 wall vents to allow heat to escape. Please keep them clear, keep your garage door closed and your vehicles free of valuables and locked. If you find a neighbor’s garage door open, please notify them.
