Starting Monday, December 22nd, 10 Yolo County offices will be closed for the next two-weeks.
Spokeswoman Beth Gabor says that means 1,100 county employees won’t be coming to work.
“They have pledged to take time off without pay to help the county balance their budget for this fiscal year.”
She says time-off without pay not only saves the county about $2 million, it also saves jobs.
“We would have had to search for other cost-cutting measures in programs and services and layoffs of course are a last resort but it’s certainly something that we would have been facing as an alternative for this year.”
Among the offices closed through January 2nd are child support services, planning and public works and the county administrator.
