By Star-Advertiser Staff

LAST UPDATED: 03:19 p.m. HST, Jan 27, 2011

Kauai Mayor Bernard Carvalho Jr. signed a bill today that erases the 11 remaining furlough days for the current fiscal year and restores funding to various county departments.

Furloughs were implemented in July of last year as a cost-saving measure, projected to save $4.6 million for the fiscal year. 

Twelve furlough days for most county offices were imposed from July through December, which saved approximately $2.3 million. Under Bill 2389, approximately $2.4 million will be distributed among county departments that would have been impacted by furloughs, according to a news release.
