Morris County Offices Closed Through Friday to Preserve Fuel

Essential government employees report to work as scheduled.

Non-essential Morris County government offices will be closed Thursday and Friday, but essential personnel must report to work as scheduled, according to an announcement from the county government.

The Morris County Office of Emergency Managment said it will continue to work to meet critical needs and the government offices were closing to assist with preserving fuel amid gas shortages.

"In order to assist with preserving fuel, Morris County government offices will close Thursday and Friday for non-essential personnel," the OEM said in a message on its Facebook page. "County employees, please note, if your manager deems you as essential or you are classified as essential, you must report as usual.

"Please be assured that although county offices will be closed to the public, essential services will continue. The Morris County Office of Emergency Management is working around the clock to meet critical needs as a result of Hurricane Sandy."

Gov. Chris Christie announced New Jersey state offices are re-opening Thursday.

Just checked. They extended today's in person voting hours from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m. because of the storm. They are open now. They also always had extended in person voting hours scheduled from 8:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 2; from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3; and from 8:30 a.m. until 3 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 5, and those hours are still in place. They opened yesterday for the first time this week about 70 people made it in to vote.

About 50 percent of the people (relatives and cronies) who work for the county are totally non-essential and could be laid off.
