City of Concord offices will be closed Friday October 19th for an unpaid furlough day. Facilities to be closed include the Civic Center complex (1950 Parkside Drive), Public Works (1455 Gasoline Alley), Concord Community Pool (3501 Cowell Rd.), the Concord Senior Center (2727 Parkside Circle), Centre Concord (5298 Clayton Rd.), Willow Pass Community Center (2748 East Olivera Rd.) and Police Headquarters (1350 Galindo St.). Police patrol and dispatch operations will not be affected by the closure.
As a cost-saving measure, City employees are taking 13 unpaid furlough days during the year, which equates to a five percent reduction in pay.
Opponents are calling these furlough days “illegal”, and plan to protest.
