Park District Furloughs Employees 3 days

Vashon Park District’s Interim Executive Director, Susan McCabe, announced today that the District will furlough all its full and part-time employees for the last three days of Christmas week, 2012 -- December 26, 27 and 28. The move necessitates the closure of all parks, Vashon Commons and park activities for the week of December 24 through 30. Ober Performance room programs will be cancelled. All Vashon Commons activities for those days will be cancelled.
The decision was made in an effort to reduce a predicted year-end shortfall of approximately $57,668. The furloughs will save the District $3527.28. Commissioners David Hackett and Joe Wald have promised to vote in favor of allowing the District to pursue additional financing that might secure continued operations in exchange for the furloughs.
