Hall County Offices open as usual Thursday; Jan. 17 furlough cancelled
Politics

Gainesville, GA--  

Hall County offices and courts will open as usual at 8 a.m. on Thursday, Jan. 13. Because the county was closed Monday and Tuesday due to inclement weather, the furlough scheduled for Tuesday, Jan. 18, has been cancelled. Offices and courts will be closed Monday, Jan. 17, for the Martin Luther King Jr. federal holiday but will open for business on Jan. 18.

Jan. 11 will be considered a furlough day for employees. The Hall County Board of Commissioners instituted one day per month of unpaid leave for all employees as a cost-saving measure during the economic recession. The Board of Commissioners will officially approve the change in the furlough schedule at its next meeting on Jan. 27.

“I believe this is the best approach to serve our taxpayers by reducing interruption of county services as much as possible,” Interim County Administrator Jock Connell said.
