A tight budget has Jones County employees in taking a six day furlough.
All 110 county employees will have 48 hours leave without pay during the next fiscal year to maintain a 70 cent property tax rate.
The furlough will allow the county to save about 65 thousand dollars.
County Commissioners will take a little more than a 2 percent pay cut, which will equal the furlough taken by employees.
The cut is a bi-product of an 8 percent reduction for most county departments.
County leaders say the pay reduction will be mostly reflected in holiday pay.
