Wakulla County Announces Office Closures

Crawfordville, Florida ““ The Wakulla County Board of County Commissioners has implemented five furlough days in an effort to reduce budgetary costs for the remainder of this fiscal year.  The first furlough day is this Monday, April 25, 2011 to coincide with the Easter Holiday.

Wakulla County is experiencing what numerous counties, cities and other organizations in Florida and the country have been experiencing for the last 3 years during the economic decline. In many jurisdictions in Florida and throughout the nation, staff furloughs are being implemented to reduce budgetary costs, while not eliminating salaried positions altogether.

“The Board has been proactive in reducing operational costs.  While employees will be directly impacted as a result, these furlough days will be a significant savings realized at the end of this fiscal year,” said Timothy Barden, Interim County Administrator.  During the following five days, all Board of County Commissioner Offices excluding EMS and Fire will be closed:

Monday, April 25, 2011
Friday, May 27, 2011
Friday, July 1, 2011
Friday, August 5, 2011
Friday, September 2, 2011
