Placer County offices will be closed Friday, July 3 for the Independence Day holiday and Monday, July 6 as a cost-saving measure.
All county emergency response and 24-hour-a-day services will continue uninterrupted both days, including law enforcement and emergency support to individuals, such as child protective services.
Monday is one of 12 days county offices will be closed during the 2009-10 fiscal year while approximately 2,200 county employees take unpaid, mandatory time off. The furlough days apply to three groups of employees: management, confidential and those represented by the Placer Public Employees Organization.
The 12 furlough days will help the county balance its budget for 2009-10. The new fiscal year began today.
