Some Quay County offices stay open

Many county, city and village offices are staying open in Quay County Friday.

Gov. Susana Martinez ordered all non-essential government offices not to open Friday, Feb. 4.

Logan’s offices are open except for the Department of Motor Vehicles, said Village Manager Larry Wallin.

“They have already shut down the support for the DMV office,” Wallin said. “We are going to tough it out today by lowering the thermostat and wearing our jackets.”

A call to the San Jon village office went unanswered at 10 a.m. Friday morning.

Monika Garrett, who answered the phone at the senior citizens’ meal site in House, said the village office was closed and that no cars were parked in the office parking lot across the street from the meal site.
