Lake County Offices to Close Wednesday Due to Extreme Cold

Lake County government offices will be closed on Wednesday, Jan. 30 due to extremely cold temperatures and dangerous wind chills set to impact Lake County and the surrounding area. Lake County offices are open Tuesday, Jan. 29.

Officials will reconvene on Wednesday to evaluate the status of operations for Thursday, Jan. 31.

Wind chills between -45° to -55° and temperatures significantly below zero are expected. Temperatures this cold can cause frostbite to exposed skin in as little as five minutes and can cause other life-threatening situations. The decision to close government buildings comes after a careful evaluation of these dangerous conditions. Ultimately, the safety of community members, employees and jurors outweighs the inconvenience of a minor disruption in services. Closing government offices will keep additional people off the road, hopefully easing the burden on emergency responders who will be working around the clock to keep community members safe during this extreme weather event.
