City commissioners next week will consider moving City Hall from a traditional five-day work week to a four-day week comprised of 10-hour days.
About 80% of employees voted in favor of the change in a recent survey and similar changes are already in place in nearby Maitland and Casselberry. The goal of the change is to improve employee engagement and improve staff retention and recruitment.
The police and fire departments as well as the parks and recreation department would be excluded from the change, according to a staff memo. City Hall would remain open five days a week.
The financial impact would be “minimal,” the memo stated.
