COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - El Paso County offices that have been operating with a four-day workweek will soon go back to a Monday-through-Friday schedule.
County commissioners had agreed in late 2007 to have some departments operate on a schedule of four, 10-hour days per week. At the time, county operations were scattered, and commissioners were hoping to save money on energy use at various buildings.
The Gazette reports commissioners voted Tuesday to restore five-day-a-week services beginning Jan. 1, now that most county services have consolidated into one building. Departments will operate 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday.
County budget officer Nicola Sapp says the four-day workweek saved about $500,000.
