Chattooga County Commissioner Jason Winters says that county employees could see up to five furlough days next year in an effort to save the county money due to decreased revenues. 

Winters said that the move would save the county up to $150,000 in a year’s time.  Winters said that it is absolutely necessary for the county to cut costs but that county services won’t be affected by the move.  Winters said that the courthouse would remain open every scheduled day and that EMS and the Sheriff’s Department could decide how to implement their furlough days.
