Local, state and county offices will be closed for the Memorial Day holiday.

The municipal government offices of Olive Branch, Southaven, Hernando, Horn Lake and Walls will be closed.

In Horn Lake, Southaven, Hernando, Walls and Olive Branch, garbage service will be running one day behind.

Brush and limb pickup is running several days behind due to the frequency of storms and downed limbs and debris.

Andrea Black, Adopt-A-Road Coordinator and administrative assistant for the DeSoto County Road Department, urged residents to continue to have patience with the delay in limb and brush pickup.

"This happens almost every spring with people picking up limbs in their yard and with the storms we've had," Black said."We're running overtime trying to get everything picked up."

DeSoto County government offices will also be closed for the Memorial Day weekend.

Garbage service in the rural, unincorporated areas will also be running a day behind, due to the holiday.

The rubbish pit on Sandidge in Olive Branch will be closed.
