Harrison County May Have Too Many Holidays
Harrison County commissioners believe they may have too many holidays in the county government.
Harrison County Judge Hugh Taylor had received a number of complaints that Harrison County offices were closed to often. So, they did a little investigation.
In a survey with other counties across Texas, commissioners found out Harrison County had the most holidays, 18, in the state. They also learned that some only have nine holidays.
The Marshall News Messenger reports the holiday count will be trimmed to 14. Among those getting losing the holiday designation by the county government are the day after New Year’s, San Jacinto Day, Juneteenth, and Lyndon B. Johnson Day.
Which are you saddest to see relegated to Pluto-status in the world of county holidays?
