Furloughs, Sunday Sales on BOC Agenda

The Board of Commissioners will discuss the items on Tuesday and vote at its business meeting on Wednesday.

Paulding County employees are looking at having to take four furlough days for fiscal year 2013.

The Board of Commissioners is expected to discuss the furlough days at its work session on Tuesday morning with a vote expected at its business session on Wednesday evening.

Last year, county employees took seven furlough days, a move that was slated to save the county $566,000. The furlough days were part of a $2.3 million in cuts to the county's budget.

Also at its meetings, commissioners are expected to take up the subject of allowing county residents to vote on the issue of the sale of packaged alcohol on Sundays. Last month, commissioners learned that they would not be able to consider a resolution that would establish a voter referendum on whether to allow package sales of alcohol on Sundays, as they learned that state regulations would prevent them from putting the issue in front of voters this year.

The BOC will hold its work session Tuesday at 10 a.m. and its business meeting Wednesday at 5 p.m. Both meetings will be held in the Board of Commissioners Meeting Room at the Watson Government Complex Administration Building. The agenda for Tuesday's work session is attached.
