WEST HAVEN, Conn. (AP) - About 160 city workers in West Haven will be taking an unpaid day off as part of a much larger effort to close a budget deficit.

The New Haven Register reports that City Hall - and many other municipal buildings - will be closed on Friday. Mayor Nancy Rossi and her staff will be among those taking one-day furloughs that are expected to save West Haven $73,000.

Police and fire stations will remain open, as will libraries and the city’s sewage treatment plant.

But there will no lifeguards on duty at city beaches.

Friday is the last day of the fiscal year and as of last month city officials were projecting an $8 million deficit for the 12-month period.



Rossi says she appreciates the financial sacrifices that employees are making.
