Friday is Final County Furlough Day of 2010


Per 2010 labor contracts reached with all Dane County employee unions, most Dane County government services will be closed on Friday, October 22nd. 


On those county furlough days, 24/7 operations like the Dane County Sheriff’s Office, Public Safety Communications (911) and Badger Prairie Health Care will all operate normally but administrative offices in those departments will be closed.  All courthouse offices and operations are closed Friday as well.


The county had four set furlough days in addition to four other floating personal days (total of 8 days off in 2010) that county employees received in exchange for agreeing to a one-year 3% wage reduction. 


Signs have been posted at the main entrances of county offices to help give the public advance notice that most county government services will be closed Friday.


County operations will resume as normal on Monday, October 25th.
