Flagstaff council rejects 4 day week

FLAGSTAFF – Saving an estimated $40,000 a year is not enough incentive for Flagstaff to go to a four-day work week for city workers.

The City Council had been asked to consider implementing an alternative work schedule for nonessential city employees.

Instead, the Council settled on a much smaller pilot program that will cover a few dozen employees in areas where service levels will not be affected.

The police and the fire department as well as parts of the city airport and the public works and utilities divisions would be not be affected by the proposal.

City workers in both Prescott Valley and Williams currently have four-day work weeks.
