AUGUSTA – Governor Paul R. LePage has announced that State offices in the following counties will be closing at NOON today due to inclement weather:
Offices in Franklin, Somerset, Penobscot, Piscataquis, Hancock, Washington and Aroostook Counties will remain open normal business hours.
“I urge all of you to drive safely as you commute to your destination. Stopping on snow or ice without skidding requires extra time and distance. Drive slowly so you can adjust to changing road conditions. Please remember to keep a safe distance behind other vehicles and give plow trucks plenty of room to operate,” said Governor LePage.
