Governor closes state offices for second day due to winter storm

The state of Kansas announced on its website today that Gov. Sam Brownback announced Tuesday evening that state offices in Shawnee County will remain closed for a second day.

This closure affects non-essential executive branch employees scheduled to work between 6 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 5, and 6 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 6, 2014.

“With continued high snow fall rates, high winds and extremely frigid temperatures, State offices in Shawnee County will be closed for an additional day,” Brownback said.  “These conditions present a significant challenge for KDOT and local communities in keeping the roads free of drifting snow. Our priority is the safety of all our employees.”

This declaration does not affect state employees of the Kansas Board of Regents, regents institutions, the judicial branch or the legislative branch of government. Their designated representative will make a separate declaration for those employees if appropriate.
