City 4/10 Work Week Pilot Program Proves to Be a Success
August 27, 2009- On June 1, 2009 several City departments changed their operational hours to a 4/10 work week as part of a pilot program that was estimated to save the City over $55,000 over a three month period. The program has proven to be a success during the first two months.
Energy consumption savings resulting from the 4/10 initiative from June thru July
Natural Gas, -14.0%;
One indirect benefit from the program was the reduction in City fleet fuel use. Fuel use city-wide declined by nearly 10% from the previous year, resulting in total savings over $100,000.
The program is scheduled to run thru Friday, September 4, 2009. City office hours will return to 8:00am -5:00 pm, Monday – Friday effective Tuesday, September 8, 2009 immediately following the Labor Day holiday.
