State offices in Shawnee County, Judicial center closed due to winter weather


TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) – Governor Laura Kelly ordered state offices in Shawnee County to be closed Friday because of inclement weather.

Forecasts show sleet and snow accumulation, which could cause safety concerns with road conditions throughout the area.

“Please stay safe and warm, exercise caution and allow road crews to do their job,” Kelly said.

Also, the Kansas Judicial Center will be closed Friday, due to adverse weather, although the Supreme Court Nominating Commission will meet on the first floor as scheduled.  The Supreme Court Nominating Commission will convene as scheduled at 8:30 a.m. Friday to finish interviewing candidates to fill a Supreme Court vacancy.

All other offices in the Judicial Center, including the Office of Judicial Administration, Clerk of the Appellate Courts, and the Reporter’s office, will be closed. Individual judicial chambers may remain open at the discretion of the justice or judge. Visitors will want to call ahead if they plan to visit judicial chambers.

All other activities affected by this change will be rescheduled, including meetings. Participants will be notified of new times and dates.
