FAIRFIELD — The management of the Solano County Superior Court announced Monday that in order to save money, they will be creating a five-day holiday weekend for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday and a pair of four-day holiday weekends for the Christmas Day and New Year’s Day holidays.
The court will be closed except for emergency rulings and other legal matters with pressing legal deadlines on Wednesday, Nov. 26, Friday, Dec. 26 and Friday, Jan. 2, 2015.
The closures will reduce the pay of court workers who will lose the 24 hours of wages as part of budget deficit plan approved by the county’s judges and the top court administrators.
The local court still faces a projected deficit of $830,000 for the current fiscal year and plans to take additional measures to balance the budget, according to the announcement.
Anyone with comments about the closures can write to Brian Taylor, court executive officer, 600 Union Ave., Fairfield, CA 94533 by Aug. 31.
