Montgomery city workers have to take furlough day

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Montgomery Mayor Todd Strange says all city employees will have to take a furlough day before the end of February.

Strange says the furlough should save the city about $450,000 and those savings have been included in the city's budget for the fiscal year.

Strange told the Montgomery Advertiser ( ) that employees can control when they take off and some have already opted for New Year's Eve.

Montgomery city workers are getting the Friday after Thanksgiving and the Monday before Christmas off as paid holidays.
