Starting Monday the Douglas County district court clerk’s office will return to opening at 8 a.m. Monday to Friday.
Due to the state’s budget crisis, the court clerk’s office had been open to the public from 9 a.m. to noon, to help workers catch up from being short staffed and the recent court furlough days.
Beginning Monday the office’s weekday morning hours will move to 8 a.m. to noon.
“We wanted to open back up to the public as much as we could,” said Linda Koester-Vogelsang, the court administrator.
The office’s afternoon hours will remain at 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Courts across the state implemented furlough days on several Fridays earlier this spring. At this point, no additional court furlough days are scheduled, Koester-Vogelsang said.
