TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW) - Kansans with court business to take care of this week will want to do it Thursday.
A furlough of court workers begins this Friday, April 13.
Chief Justice Lawton Nuss announced last week that courts will close for five Fridays in all. He says the move was needed because lawmakers left for break without approving additional funding to get the judicial branch through the rest of the fiscal year.
Shawnee County District Court says, with the court clerk's office closed Friday, people will need to do financial transactions Friday or wait until Monday. Also, those needing marriage licenses for this weekend must pick them up by 3:30 pm Thursday.
The furlough does not affect non-court county offices, the district attorney or municipal court.
