I was going to post this a few days ago but forgot.
This won't affect most visitors, but you should know that this week, Utah will go to a 4-day week in many state agencies to try to save the energy costs of running buildings, vehicles, equipment, etc. This will be tested for a year and then evaluated to see if it should become permanent.
Most ADMINISTRATIVE offices will operate from 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mon-Thur. This includes the Department of Motor Vehicles, Forestry & Fire, State Parks, State Historical Society, Health Services, and most others. However, parks will be open to the public every day, state universities will operate 5 days, and essential services like law enforcement, wildland fire, ports of entry, and highway maintenance will be provided.
This is for state agencies only. It does not affect Federal agencies, cities, or private entities. The emergency number for people having problems regarding the state office schedule will be (801) 538-1808.
There are several welcome centers on main highways, and I haven't determined if those will be affected. I have a feeling, in a tourist-sensitive state, they will still be staffed every day. When I find out, I'll let you know.
