If you are thinking of taking care of a little motor vehicle business on New Year's Eve ... think again. Thursday, Dec. 31, is one of a handful of furlough days for state government workers, including those in the Colorado Department of Revenue. While the El Paso County Clerk and Recorder's offices will be open that day, workers won't be able to process matters related to driver's licenses, titles or vehicle registrations.
So if your expiration date is approaching, it might be a good resolution to go in on or before Wednesday.
The state has four scheduled furlough days in 2010, all of them on Fridays: Jan. 15, Feb. 12, April 2 and May 28.
