  • Presidents Day Holiday:  The City of Coronado will observe the Presidents Day holiday on Monday, February 19, but reminds residents and businesses that some municipal facilities will be open. Coronado Police and Fire will be staffed for the holiday. Public Services crews also will be on call on Monday to respond to emergencies but will not sweep streets on the holiday. Certain City of Coronado departments and services will be open with varying hours of operation.
  • Navy Noise & Training Alerts:  In honor of Presidents’ Day, Naval Base Coronado will render a 21 gun salute on Monday, February 19.  The gun salute will commence from Pier Juliet on Naval Air Station North Island at 12 p.m.  Residents of Coronado, Point Loma, and San Diego near the Bay can expect to hear the gun salute.  The Navy will conduct dive operations training near Glorietta Bay from January 30 to February 21.
  • Prescription Drug Box: The Police Department has collected over 3,700 pounds of unwanted/expired medications and syringes since installing the prescription drug box in the Department’s lobby three and a half years ago. That’s 3,700 lbs. of medication that will never land in the wrong hands and will not end up in landfills or our sewer system. The prescription drug box allows for a safe, convenient, and environmentally responsible means of disposing unused medications. The prescription drug box is available to the public during the Police Department’s regular business hours. All liquids must be placed in plastic, sealed bags. The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.
