Local impacts of National Day of Mourning

In order to best serve our residents, Johnson County Government has decided to remain open to the public on Wednesday, Dec. 5, 2018, which President Trump has proclaimed as a National Day of Mourning, in remembrance of former President George H.W. Bush. Remaining open is consistent with other city and county offices in our region.

Kansas state offices will be closed on Wednesday. Please note these clarifications relating to state services, which are closely tied to county government.

The Kansas Judicial Branch is participating in the state of Kansas’ observance. Johnson County District Courts will maintain core services to include court hearings, the Clerk’s office, and court services. Parents Forever and Pre-Trial Orientation will be provided as scheduled. The Help Center will be closed, however, self- represented litigants will be able to file documents with the Court. Case information is always available online at www.jococourts.org.

The county’s Olathe and Mission motor vehicle offices (vehicle registration and titling) will be open, but the Kansas Department of Revenue will not be available to provide support to counties on Wednesday.

It may be helpful to know that driver’s license offices, operated by the state, will not be open on Wednesday. The U.S. Postal Service will suspend regular mail deliveries and close post offices Dec. 5, but provide limited package delivery.
