The four day work week is not coming to Outagamie County next year. Earlier this year, County Executive Toby Paltzer announced that he planned to include the schedule change in his 2009 budget. But this week, he said he left it out because he learned that it wouldn't save as much money on energy costs as he thought it would. "We thought we would see a greater energy savings," Palyzer told WHBY, noting that the actual savings would only have been about $1300. But the proposal isn't completely dead. Paltzer says the county's health and humans services director and the airport director are both interested in trying four-day work week pilot programs.
