City services (namely garbage collection days) will experience a slight lag as per the upcoming holidays, but Clay County garbage collection will continue as regularly scheduled.
West Point Chief Administrative Officer Randy Jones said although the upcoming holidays present a slight delay, it will be â€śbusiness as usual.â€ť
Public works, Jones said, will be out of commission for the duration of both Christmas day and New Years day. Individuals that attempt to phone city hall and its respective branches will be redirected to a 911 call center where dispatchers will page stand-by crews.
The only thing out of routine will be sanitation services, according to Jones. Normally, garbage collection crews make their rounds Wednesday, but due to the holidays the collection date has been scheduled (both this week and the next) for Thursday.
Thatâ€™s the extent of the delays, said Jones.
