Facing $2 million shortfall, Twiggs Co. furloughs employees

Some Twiggs County employees will have lighter paychecks for the next couple of months.

The county is cutting back some workers' hours to save money.

According to a document sent to employees, the furloughs will affect 22 full-time and nine part-time workers.

Most of them will lose two days pay each week through Oct. 1 and then one day a week through Nov. 11.

Some of the departments affected include roads, elections, custodians and the commissioners and tax offices.

County commission chairman Kenneth Fowler says they could be looking at a $2 million deficit by the end of the year if they don't cut costs.
