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.
The City of Tucumcari has auditors on site for their annual audit, while city crews are out addressing several water issues around the town, said Bobbye Rose, city manager.
"We did not think it would be fair to have our guys out in the field and the rest of the employees at home," Rose said. "We have several major water leaks at various locations including The Tucumcari Convention Center and Waste Water Treatment Plant."
Rose said they have spoken with the local gas company, who assured them that a shortage of natural gas was not an issue they would likely face.
"We have the thermostat lowered and have our jackets on. We are going to make this work," Rose said.
The Quay County Clerk's office has electric heaters running and employees are bundled up as they prepare for the school board election canvass.
"We were told only non-essential offices were going to be closing," said Quay County Clerk Ellen White. "We will just have to work through the cold and get the job done."
