Most Federal, state and local government offices will be closed on Monday, July 5th to allow employees to celebrate the Independence Day holiday.
Independence Day is Sunday, July 4th.
Federal law (5 U.S.C. 6103) establishes ten paid public holidays a year for Federal employees. Most Federal employees work on a Monday through Friday schedule. When the holiday falls on a Saturday or Sunday, a non-work day for most Government employees, the Government allows the holiday to be observed on a work day so the employees get it as a paid day off. If the holiday falls on a Sunday, it is observed on Monday for the paid day off. If the holiday falls on a Saturday, federal employees get Friday off as a paid day off.
Locally, the Sublette County Courthouse and employees, U.S. Post Offices, U.S. Forest Service offices, Bureau of Land Management, Wyoming Game & Fish, both Sublette County Medical Clinics, Sublette County Library, Pinedale Town Hall and Marbleton Town Hall will all be closed on Monday, July 5th. Big Piney Town Hall office personnel said they were not certain if they would be closed on July 5th because a decision had not yet been made by the Town Council on that topic.
Below are the paid holidays for federal employees. Most state and many local government offices also close to observe these same days as paid holidays for their employees.
