BOONE COUNTY GOVERNMENT OFFICES AND DEPARTMENTS
TO BE OPEN WITH MINIMAL STAFF DUE TO IMPENDING INCLEMENT WEATHER

February 3, 2013—The National Weather Service forecast anticipates 5-8” snow accumulation on Tuesday, February 4, 2013. The snow is anticipated to begin as early as 6:00AM and continue throughout the day, increasing to an inch per hour during the afternoon. In anticipation of the inclement weather and related hazardous driving conditions, the Boone County Commission has announced that, while the Boone County departments and offices will remain open, they will do so with minimal staff presence. All non-essential staff are encouraged to stay home should they feel that the driving conditions are such that coming to work may jeopardize their safety.

The County of Boone would like to remind citizens to avoid unnecessary travel and take the necessary precautions to ensure their safety. For the latest information, stay tuned to local media and NOAA Weather Radio.
