Sparks Justice Court to be open four days a week

•  Recent Cases     updated  2011/07/25 08:13


Sparks Justice Court is planning to go to four-day work weeks because of budget cuts.

Justice of the Peace Kevin Higgins says court staff will work from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays through Fridays, and take only a half-hour lunch. Public access will be 8-5 on those days.

He says the court like other agencies is under a mandate to cuts wages and benefits by 7 percent, and the compact work week was the only option allowing the court to continue services without losing more staff.

He says judges will still be available for emergency matters, such as processing search warrants and protective orders.

The change needs confirmation from the Washoe County Commission, but is expected to take effect Aug. 15 and last the rest of the fiscal year.
