As our frantic last-minute Christmas shopping commences and we teeter on the edge of Christmas Day, the City of Long Beach would like its residents to know that some bus routes may be altered, to not to worry about street sweeping for a day and to understand that no, you can't pay your overdue gas bill on Friday (at least not in person). Happy Holidays!
