Pilot Mountain Employees to Take Six Furlough Days

PILOT MOUNTAIN, N.C. (WGHP) — Pilot Mountain's board of commissioners voted Monday to have employees take six furlough days off between now and the end of the fiscal year on June 30.

'The Mount Airy News' reported that Town Manager Homer Dearmin said unpaid days off would be better for employees than taking a salary reduction across the board.

Dearmin said having furlough days means that everyone can keep their jobs. He said the six furlough days will save the town $22,741.
