December 2016 - From the Chairman:

The Supervisors recently approved the 2017 Designation of Holidays
for Fayette County. These dates are set for the Employees of Fayette
County and when the Fayette County Courthouse is closed for County
business.

There has been some confusion in the past because the Clerk of
Courts and the court system also conduct business out of the Fayette
County Courthouse. On certain holidays the Clerk of Courts and the
court system are closed and the Fayette County Courthouse is not and
vice versa.

These are the 2017 dates that the Courthouse will be closed for Fayette
County employees/business:

New Year’s Day - Monday, January 2                                 
President’s Day – Monday, February 20
Memorial Day – Monday, May 29                                       
Independence Day – Tuesday, July 4
Labor Day – Monday, September 4
Veterans’ Day – Friday, November 10
Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 23 & Friday, November 24
Christmas – Monday, December 25 & Tuesday, December 26

These are the 2017 dates that the court system and the Clerk of Courts,
who’s employees are not County employees but rather State of Iowa
Employees, will be closed for business in Fayette County:

New Year’s Day - Monday, January 2                                
Martin Luther King Day – Monday, January 16
Memorial Day – Monday, May 29                                      
Independence Day – Tuesday, July 4
Labor Day – Monday, September 4                                   
Veteran’s Day – Friday, November 10
Thanksgiving – Thursday, November 23 & Friday, November 24
Christmas – Monday, December 25

Since January 1st is on Sunday the Courthouse will be closed on
January 2nd. Veteran’s Day is November 11th however that day falls on
a Saturday so the Fayette County Courthouse will be closed on Friday,
November 10th.  Please note also that only December 25th is a
scheduled closed date for the Clerk of Courts and the court system.

Hope this clears up some of the confusion. These dates are on the
Fayette County website or please clip and save this article.

On a personal note: Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
