Montgomery City Employees Forced to Take Furlough Day by February


By Kristen Fisher

Montgomery city employees will have to take an unpaid day off to save the city money.

Mayor Todd Strange says the furlough should save Montgomery about $450,000 in savings already included in the city's budget for the fiscal year.

Strange told the Montgomery Advertiser that employees can control when they take off, but have to do it before February and some are choosing New Year's Eve.

Montgomery city workers are getting Black Friday and Christmas Eve off as paid holidays.
