Source: Nina Johnson for the City of Santa Barbara

Most City of Santa Barbara administrative offices and facilities will be closed for the holidays from this Friday, Dec. 21, through Tuesday, Jan. 1. Offices will reopen on Jan. 2.

While most offices will be closed, many services will continue to be available, including harbor patrol, building inspections, and critical repair services for streets, water, sewer and parks. The 9-1-1 dispatch service for police and fire emergencies will continue operating during this time.

LiveScan fingerprinting will not be conducted during the closure period and will resume on Jan. 7.

The city’s airport, marina and public parking lots will remain open. The Central Library, Eastside Library, Golf Club, Los Baños Pool and Cabrillo Bathhouse will be open to the public during most of the holiday period. The public is advised to check the schedule for observed holidays and special holiday hours.

Water, sewer and trash bill payments can be mailed, dropped off at City Hall or paid online on the city’s website. Payments will be processed and credited to accounts throughout the closure period. Cash payments will be accepted at the Cashier’s Office at City Hall through this Thursday, Dec. 20, or when offices reopen on Jan. 2.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
