TOPEKA – Kansas Governor Sam Brownback announced Tuesday morning that Executive Branch state offices in Shawnee County will delay opening until 10:00 a.m. to allow state crews time to clear roads, parking lots and sidewalks.
Because the snowstorm that passed through Kansas overnight covered a large part of the state in varying degrees, agency secretaries and appointing authorities will determine whether to delay or close Executive Branch state offices outside of Shawnee County. Executive Branch state employees who work outside of Shawnee County should contact their agency for determination whether their offices are delaying opening today or will be closed.
Delaying the opening of the offices located in Shawnee County will affect non-essential Executive Branch employees who work between 6:00 am, Tuesday, February 26, 2013 to 10:00 a.m., Tuesday, February 26, 2013.
This declaration does not include state employees in the Board of Regents, Regents Institutions, the Judicial Branch, nor the Legislative Branch of Government. Their designated representative will make a separate declaration for those employees if appropriate.
