It seems no one in Montgomery knows exactly what is goin on.
It was announced last month that many state offices were closing for lack of operating funds. Most significant of these were 33 of the 75 State Driver’s License facilities.
During the last special session of the Alabama Legislature, a state wide budget was passed and it was announced the D.L. closures were put on hold.
However, Gov. Bentley confirmed Monday (Sept 28th) that the first round of closures (33) will proceed as scheduled October 1st.
That number still includes LaFayette.
Gov Bentley also said a number, yet to be determined, National Guard Armories around the state will close permanently for “lack of funding,” as well as the majority of State Parks.
An announcement of which parks selected will be made available this week.
