BAYOU LA BATRE, Ala. (AP) - Government workers in Bayou La Batre could face furloughs or layoffs.

Mayor Annette Johnson said this week that the city needs to trim roughly $208,000 in payroll expenses. Johnson said the city could consider furloughs or layoffs to balance its budget.

WKRG-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1LXUYeD ) the furloughs would amount to one day’s pay over each of the next three months. Layoffs would affect three of the city’s 50 workers.

The council did not make any financial decisions during a meeting Tuesday. Officials may re-visit the issue during a meeting Thursday.
