Several buildings in the state Capitol complex were closed for health and safety reasons Tuesday afternoon that were related to the deadly tornado that struck Moore the previous day. Officials at the Office of Management and Enterprise Services acted at the direction of OMES Director Preston L. Doerflinger.
Michelle R. Day, administrator of the Division of Capital Assets Management of the OMES, said low water pressure had impacted DECAM’s ability to keep restrooms open throughout the Capitol complex. The following buildings were closed for the health and safety of employees and the general public and to preserve as much water as possible for ongoing emergency response services.:
- Jim Thorpe
- Department of Transportation
- Will Rogers
- Judicial Center
- Denver Davison
- Agricultural Building and Lab
- Attorney General’s Office
- Department of Libraries
- Banking Commission
Some personnel remained on the job to provide essential services. Others were on on-call status during normal working hours. Affected agencies were expected to resume their normal operations today.
