City, county offices, post office, banks,  Echo closed Thursday

From Staff Reports

Nov 20, 2007 - Those with business to be conducted this week in Sulphur Springs will want to do so by the close of business Wednesday as local government offices and banks will be closed Thursday to allow employees time with their loved ones for Thanksgiving.

All Hopkins County officers, including the courthouse, clerk’s offices and annexes will be closed except for the jail and dispatch at the sheriff’s office. Deputies will still be available to respond to calls for service or emergencies, as will fire personnel. However, all office staff at county offices will be off both Thursday and Friday for the holiday, and will reopen again as usual on Monday morning, according to the county judge.

Also, all city offices including City Hall and the Municipal Court will be closed Thursday and Friday for the holiday. The police department office staff will also be off, but dispatchers and officers will still be available to respond to calls for service and emergency calls as will the fire department. The other department will reopen again as usual at regular hours Monday.

Federal employees are also off for the holiday on Thursday, and all four local banks will also be closed Thursday for Thanksgiving. So if you’ve got mail that needs to go out before Thursday or need to deposit or make a withdrawal of cash, or other banking transactions you’ll want to visit the post office or bank by the close of the business day Wednesday. The post office and banks will reopen Friday as usual.

Also, subscribers may want to note that all Echo Publishing offices will be closed on Thursday to allow time for employees to spend with their families during Thanksgiving. Consequently, there will not be a Thursday edition of the News-Telegram published this week. The publication will resume again on Friday.
