The Henderson Fiscal Court is meeting Tuesday at 9 a.m. to discuss the county’s hiring freeze and furloughs put in place this year.
Cuts made this year have required employees in the parks, road, and recycling departments to be restricted to working four days a week.
The Fiscal Court initially planned to lift that restriction sometime in the fall – making this a likely topic of discussion at the meeting.
The cuts also entailed monthly furloughs for employees in the parks department and clerk’s office.
The treasurer has also been required to take a day off without pay.
The absence of coal severance money, a lower gas tax, and higher insurance costs have been cited as major reasons for the cuts by Hugh McCormick, Judge Executive in Henderson County.
