Feds, state, banks close today for Columbus Day observance

But no holiday for businesses, schools, city governments

Federal, state and some county offices will be closed today in observance of Columbus Day.

All Alameda County courts will be closed although other county offices will be open. City offices in Pleasanton, Dublin and Livermore will be open as usual along with public schools.

In the private sector, Columbus Day is generally not observed as a holiday.

There will be no postal service or mail deliveries today.
