The County of Spokane is struggling with budget cuts and the judicial and law enforcement departments are taking some big hits. I’m sure other departments are in the same predicament, but as someone who works with the judicial department, I’m keenly aware of the upcoming changes and reductions in services. One of the adjustments I’m going to have to make is not being able to take advantage of the quiet time in the Superior Court Clerk’s office over lunch. Effective January 1, 2010, the new office hours for the Superior Court Clerk are Monday through Friday:
8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
(Closed for Lunch)
1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m.
It is my understanding that seven (7) staff positions were eliminated in the Clerk’s office and they are asking for everyone’s patience as they try to perform the same functions with reduced staff and hours.
