Gov. Kelly orders delayed start for some Kansas employees

TOPEKA ( KSNT ) — State offices will be closed until 10 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 23, in light of recent winter weather.

Governor Laura Kelly issued an Inclement Weather Declaration, which will push the start time for non-essential state employees in Shawnee County back. According to a press release from the Governor, some state offices will be opening at 10 a.m. tomorrow.

“Due to icy road conditions, state employees will have a delayed start time tomorrow,” Kelly said. “Please exercise caution when driving and allow road crews to do their job.”

This delay is to give road crews adequate time to clear the roads and sidewalks after the sun rises. State employees should report to work by 10 a.m., which is when offices will be open to the public, according to the press release.

This declaration does not include employees with the Board of Regents, Regents Institutions, the Judicial Branch, other statewide elected offices nor the Legislative Branch of Government, according to the press release. Each of those designated representatives will be in charge of making that decision for their employees, if appropriate.
