Hours at the Douglas County District Court Clerk’s office soon will be cut, and the office will be closed several days this spring as a result of state budget woes.
On Wednesday, the clerk’s office announced that beginning April 12 the office will open at 9 a.m., which is one hour later than normal. It also will close one hour earlier at 4 p.m. The office will continue to be closed during the lunch hour.
In addition, the office will be closed entirely on April 9, April 16, April 23 and May 7 as part of a furlough program being implemented by the state’s judicial branch to deal with budget shortfalls.
The new hours will be in place indefinitely.
