AGO 1964 NO. 93 >

The board of county commissioners of each of the counties in the state has the authority under state law to fix the days and hours that county offices shall be open; therefore the commissioners may establish by ordinance or resolution that county offices will be closed on any Friday or Monday when a county legal holiday falls on a weekend.  However, the clerk's office and sheriff's office must remain open on all judicial days.
