The Iowa Court system will shut down Friday for the third time this year to save money. Court communications officer, Steve Davis, says the shut downs are just one way to save money, and the courts now have a website for your cost-cutting ideas.
Davis says they are looking for public input on more ways to cut costs. Davis says the website gives an overview of the entire court system budget. He says the budget information allows people to see what the budget looks like and how money is spent, and there is an area where you can submit your cost-cutting idea.
The courts are scheduled to close for a day five more times after this Friday. Those days are: April 24, May 8th, May 22nd, June 5th and June 19th.
You can submit your cost-cutting ideas on the Iowa Judicial System website .
