Kauai County employees face furloughs next month



LIHUE>> Kauai County employees face being furloughed two days per month, beginning in July, under a bill approved by the county council.

In order to match what the county employees will lose, Mayor Bernard P. Carvalho Jr. is voluntarily taking a 9.2 percent salary cut.

County spokeswoman Mary Daubert said this week that all department heads appointed by Carvalho have agreed to his request to reduce their own salaries by the same amount.

The council announced last month that it would follow Carvalho’s lead and take a pay cut.

The furlough issue will be revisited by the council in about six months.
