Christmas Eve A Holiday For Federal, Neb State, And County Workers

  If you have government business to take care, it’s likely going to have to wait until Monday. 

      That’s because President Trump declared Christmas Eve as a holiday for federal workers, a move that also makes it a holiday for state and county workers in Nebraska.

      Cities aren’t directly affected, but many were already closing their offices at noon. Chadron is among those with the noon closure, which includes the library and the Aquatics and Wellness Center.

     The library won’t reopen until Monday, but the Aquatics and Wellness Center will be open Saturday from noon till 6:00 and have its regular Sunday open swim from 1-5:00.  

     Financial institutions are closed on Christmas, but can make their own decisions for Thursday. In Chadron, all are closing at noon except for Bank of the West, which is open until 2:00. First National Omaha is the only one that will be open Saturday
