President Jim King (D-10) is seeking input from Metro Council members on their interest in participating in Mayor Greg Fischer’s voluntary weeklong furlough program.
“I committed to encourage 100% participation among Council members immediately following the Mayor’s Budget presentation,” says King. “I would like to get a sense from all members as to their participation and the participation of their aides and staff. So, I will be contacting each office”
Mayor Fischer is proposing a voluntary weeklong furlough for Metro Government employees making under $70,000. Those making over $70,000 will be required to take a furlough.
