TGIF will mean something for county employees again

  Furlough Fridays may become a thing of the past. It appears that the county will have enough money to put its employees back to work full-time.

  The Plumas supervisors discussed ending furloughs during budget talks Sept. 10. The public hearing on the 2013-14 budget is scheduled to begin this morning, Wednesday, Sept. 18, at 10.

  Susan Scarlett, the county’s budget consultant, presented the supervisors with the latest revised figures, including a spreadsheet that outlined each department’s spending.

  “Your department heads have been very frugal,” Scarlett said. And some departments brought in more revenue than anticipated.

  The cut in spending, coupled with increased revenue, enables the board to stop talking about additional cuts and start talking about restoring some spending.

  The board tentatively made decisions to restore the county’s reserve fund to $2 million; lift county furloughs; and fund the fair.

  Scarlett told the supervisors that since they made difficult decisions last year and balanced the budget, they were now in a better position.

  The supervisors are scheduled to open budget hearings today and depending on public input and discussion, the hearing could close today or be continued for up to 14 calendar days. The budget must be adopted by Oct. 2.
