Federal workers are coming back to work, but some state services are still "shut down"
Wrap: If you live in Stoddard County, it could be a while before you can use a bus.
Stoddard County's Transit Office Manager Rachel Garrett says she doesn't expect to receive federal funds for a couple of weeks.
|Description: "They're going to start at the top of the chain, and transportation is probably somewhere down at the low end, so depending on when they get to us to give us our funds, that's when I get to rehire my employees."|
Garrett says her office usually has 11 people in it, but she is the only person working there now.
