2021 December snow and ice storm update 2

Release date: 12/28/2021
Sponsored by: County Administrative Office

Washington County buildings will open two hours later than usual, at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 28, and then close at 4:00 p.m. due to expected freezing temperatures and icy conditions. Washington County Circuit Court will operate under a 2-hour delay as well, with all early morning court appearances rescheduled to 10 a.m. The Court will also close for the day at 4:00 p.m.

The county’s P5 parking lot and much of the parking structure in downtown Hillsboro will remain open, but employees and the public are urged to be cautious while travelling from their vehicles to county buildings. Crews will attempt to remove ice and snow as much as possible and open other parking lots as they become cleared.

In keeping with the Washington County Inclement Weather Policy, employees should coordinate with their supervisors about any adjustments to their work schedules as appropriate. All who are able are encouraged to work remotely during this snow event. Please monitor local news and weather for potential winter weather conditions expected throughout the week.

Employees and the public are asked to monitor the Washington County website or social media feeds to learn more about potential changes to hours of operation. Updates about road closures and snow removal from the County road system can be found at www.wc-roads.com.
