Which brings us to... holiday closures. All area government offices (including SRTC) will be closed Thursday and Friday this week for the Thanksgiving holiday. That gives you until 5:00 tonight to get any government business done that has to be accomplished before next week. Otherwise you have to wait until 8 a.m. Monday when all the office open again
If you plan to be downtown on Thanksgiving, you don't have to pay the parking meters. And they're free after 5 p.m. through January 1.
