Ky. courts to be closed Aug. 6 for furlough day

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky Judicial Branch is shutting down for one day next week for the first of three furlough days in 2012.

All court services will be unavailable and courthouses will be closed on Aug. 6 as the Judicial Branch takes a day off to balance its budget.

The Judicial Branch says non-elected court personnel will be off work without pay. The other two furlough days this year are Sept. 4 and Oct. 15.

In addition to courts, other services unavailable on those days will be driver's licenses, pretrial services, bond processing and release orders. However, existing after-hours protocol will be followed for processing domestic violence orders and emergency protective orders.

The judiciary's 2013 budget, which covers the year ending next June 30, saw a reduction of $25.2 million.
