Governor Closes Cheyenne State Government Offices
Governor Mark Gordon closed state government offices in Cheyenne at 3 a.m. this morning.
According to a statement from the governor’s office, other state offices may close across the state depending on local weather conditions due to the severe nature of this wide-ranging storm.
Governor Gordon monitored the progress of this storm throughout the night with the Wyoming Department of Transportation, Wyoming Office of Homeland Security and the Wyoming Highway Patrol.
In the statement, he praised the responsiveness and preparedness of the agencies and their ability to get ahead of this rapidly developing and serious winter storm.
“We have closed roads and offices to protect the people of Wyoming and those traveling through the state,” Gordon said. “We have been proactively closing roads ahead of the storm. Additionally, offices throughout the state especially those in the eastern and southern parts of the state are being closed as necessary.”
“This storm has the potential to be particularly dangerous. My advice is to stay put and shelter in place.”
“Stay home, stay off the roads, and stay safe and warm,” Governor Gordon said.
