Atlantic County Furlough Closing - Friday, October 7

Most Atlantic County government offices will be closed on Friday, October 7 as county employees observe a furlough day, the second of five scheduled through the end of the year. The Superior Court of New Jersey will remain open as well as many of the 24-hour county government operations such as the jail and the Meadowview Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in addition to the animal shelter, county senior centers and transportation.

According to County Executive Dennis Levinson the furlough days became necessary to stabilize the county tax rate and avoid layoffs once the county was notified it would have to come up with an extra $3.4 million for Atlantic City tax appeals on top of the $7.3 million that had already been budgeted.

The October 7 closures will include the county library branches, but the following 24-hour operations will be accessible:
