All El Paso County administrative, elected administrative offices and affiliated agencies, including El Paso County Combined Courts will open at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, due to inclement weather and hazardous driving conditions in El Paso County.
The delayed opening includes El Paso County Public Health, the Department of Human Services, the Pikes Peak Workforce Center, CSU Extension, the Small Business Development Center (SBDC), the El Paso County Public Trustee, and the offices of the 4th Judicial District Attorney. The delayed opening applies to non-mission essential personnel.
El Paso County Public Works currently has 36 trucks out in all areas of the County. Widespread slick and icy roads may be an issue for the duration of this storm, due to the moisture received, continuing snow and the dropping temperatures. County plows will focus on Priority 1 roads through the commute and move into Priority roads 2 and 3 as the storm allows. Priority 1 roads are major thoroughfares with typically large volumes of traffic. Priority two roads are collector and connector routes. Priority 3 roads are neighborhood streets and cul-de-sacs.
Residents are encouraged to allow extra time for travel in the morning and prepare for hazardous driving conditions.
The regularly scheduled Board of County Commissioners meeting will start at 11:00 a.m.
