Four Day Work Week
The five day work week may be a thing of the past... for employees of Marion County.
One of the ideas that came up at the county's strategic planning meeting was as a way to cut the budget by opening all county departments only four days a week with extended hours.
The plan would save the county two hundred and fifty thousand dollars a year in utilities and custodial services, but not everyone thinks the savings will be worth the potential loss.
Tax Collector George Albright says, "We probably could meet our legal obligation as the tax collector but I don't think we could meet out ethical obligation to the public."
Marion County Spokesperson Judge Cochran says, "If you're a nine to fiver and you need to take care of some county business after you get off of work, you don't have to rush, you can come on over and we can take care of you."
As of now, the county is waiting to hear back from the five elected constitutional officers which is the the clerk of courts, the property appraiser, tax collector, supervisor of elections and the
Marion County Sheriff.
