GOVERNOR ORDERS STATE OFFICES IN JACKSON TO CLOSE FRIDAY

Governor Haley Barbour extended the closure of state offices in Jackson to Friday because of the continuing lack of water pressure citywide.

Although state agencies are allowed to remain closed, water service has been restored to some agencies, and the Governor urged agency heads to decide whether key personnel in their agencies should report to work and to notify them accordingly.

State offices have been closed since Monday when broken water lines disrupted service, causing a threat to health and safety.
