Monday is Columbus Day; government workers on furloughs
New Richmond Wisconsin 127 South Knowles Avenue 54017

Next Monday is Columbus Day. And most state government employees will have the day off without pay.

They're required to take 16 furlough days in the two years ending in July 2011, to help balance the current state budget.

All but a dozen state offices and departments will be closed next Monday, which is a holiday for federal workers.

Those looking to renew their driver's licenses or filing complaints of various kinds will either have to wait until Tuesday, or go online for services which are available.

The main address for that is www.Wisconsin.gov.

State parks, forests, and trails will be open next Monday, along with the emergency management agency and veterans' assistance centers.
