SB County Furlough
updated: Dec 03, 2012, 9:42 AM

Source: Santa Barbara County

Wage concession agreements reached with the County's unions achieved estimated savings of approximately $18.5 million in Fiscal Year 2012-13, with ongoing savings continuing in subsequent years. Those agreements included furloughs for certain groups of County employees. At its October 16, 2012 meeting, the County Board of Supervisors approved plans to implement full or partial closures of many County Departments beginning on Monday, December 24, 2012 and ending when all offices reopen on Wednesday, January 2, 2013 after the New Year's Day holiday.

Public safety, public assistance, and public health programs will remain available to the public during this time as the Sheriff, Fire, Public Health, Social Services, Mental Health, Emergency Management, and Public Works departments will remain open to provide essential services to County residents. In addition, limited staffing will be maintained in the Agricultural Commissioner's Office, Clerk-Recorder- Assessor's Office, and many general administrative offices in order to provide essential services.

A comprehensive list of full and partial department closures, as well as of those departments that will remain open, is attached and available on the County's website: www.CountyofSB.org
