Stoffa's Voluntary Furlough Program Already Saving Money
In the few weeks that Northampton County John Stoffa's voluntary furlough has been in operation, it has already saved taxpayers $8,550. That's according to a brief report he made to county council's personnel committee this evening. Fifteen workers have already taken advantage of the program. Asked by Council Prez Ann McHale about child support and IRS deductions, Human Relations Director Connie Sutton Falf explained this furlough can only be taken for up to one week at a time. Since workers are paid biweekly, the deductions can still be made.
