MLK closings announced

GREENVILLE — For most government officials, students and some businesses, the Martin Luther King Day holiday Monday will also be the last day of a three-day weekend.

All federal, State of Texas, Hunt County and City of Greenville offices will be closed Monday, as will the Greenville Independent School District, and most banks will also be closed for the federal holiday.

After a warmer weekend, the weather conditions are expected to turn colder again Monday. The National Weather Service forecast is calling for mostly sunny skies and a high temperature of around 50 degrees Monday.

King, a civil rights leader and the creator of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, was slain in 1968. Since 1986, the third Monday in January has been observed as a federal holiday in King’s honor.
