A Message from Wright County Administration:
This morning (Tuesday, Feb. 21), Wright County made the decision not to close county departments and offices over the coming two days despite the likelihood that travel will be limited if not impossible at times during the storm that is expected to drop 18 inches of snow or more between now and Thursday night.
That decision was made because there are some transactions the public has with the county that include deadlines that must be met. As such, public facing departments and offices will be open Wednesday and Thursday, but many will have limited capacity out of safety concerns for our employees traveling to get the Wright County government campus. At this point, no travel is advised Wednesday night into Thursday and limiting the number of drivers on the road makes work easier for public safety employees to respond to emergencies as they happen.
While travel is not recommended during this significant storm, we are mindful that some business may need to be conducted Wednesday or Thursday, so our doors will remain open to serve the public as best we can under the circumstances.
