Tomorrow, the first day of Fiscal Year 2011, a plan to furlough Maui County employees will be implemented.
The plan, estimated to save the county $3.5 million, begins July 16 and will affect several county offices and employees on Molokai.
Offices on Molokai that will be closed include the Maui County Council district office, Real Property office and the Department of Motor Vehicle and Licensing. Administrative offices and all payment windows and counters will be closed as well.
The county’s furlough Fridays for the year will begin July 16 and include Aug. 13, Sept. 24, Oct. 8, Nov. 5 and Dec. 10 for 2010, and Jan. 28, Feb. 11, March 11, April 8, May 20 and June 24 for 2011.
On weeks that have furlough days, refuse collection pickups on Molokai will be made on Wednesday.
Mayor Charmaine Tavares has also agreed to reduce her pay for the equivalent of 12 furlough days.
