Modesto offices are closed today

Most city- operated offices will be closed today for a mandatory furlough day.

The Modesto City Council approved the closure, hooked onto the Memorial Day weekend. All City offices in Tenth Street Place, 1010 10th St., will be closed.

Uniformed police operations and emergency dispatch will operate as usual and all 11 fire stations will be open.

The Modesto Police Department lobby at 600 10th St. will be open today but closed Monday; anyone needing police help Monday can use the phone near the lobby doors.
