Some liquor stores in Lawrence will be open today for the New Year’s Day holiday.
But others — by their owners’ choice instead of by law — will be closed.
Most government offices and public services will be closed today, including all city, county, state and federal offices.
Banks will also be closed.
Most offices will open, and services will resume Friday.
The Douglas County District Court will open Friday with reduced staff, and anyone who has been summoned to appear for a limited-action civil court case or before District Judge Jean Shepherd needs to appear. The district court clerk’s office will be open to accept filings and payments.
