Pasco County school children and government workers won’t have to report tomorrow morning.
The county announced a few moments ago that all government offices and public schools will be closed Monday, Aug. 27, due to Tropical Storm Isaac.
“The decision is due to the uncertain weather conditions that Tropical Storm Isaac poses early Monday and throughout the day,” a county media release said. “The closure of Pasco County Government means PCPT Transit Buses will not be in operation, County Parks are closed and County Libraries are traditionally closed on Mondays.”
New Port Richey's non-emergency city government offices will also be closed.
While most government offices and services will be suspended on Monday, curbside garbage collection will continue, the release said. Residents, however, should check with their private garbage services to be sure.
Other Pasco closings include the court system and the clerk’s office.
The county’s Emergency Operations Center is officially open as Isaac makes its way north in the Gulf of Mexico. Residents with questions or a need for information on county services, shelters or storm preparedness can contact the Resident Information Center at 727-847-8959/2411.
