Civil service employees are taking a forced 3-day furlough (time off without pay) while academic employees received a temporary pay cut instead of a furlough. The state program staff is affect by these changes. However, it is better than losing people.
With the university closure, Dave, Bridget and I will not be in our offices during this time, so you must plan ahead:
- Please enter your hours before Dec. 22 - especially if you may think you need help. Remember that all hours must be entered by the end of the year in order to get credit.
- Please request any materials, such as brochures, before Dec. 15, 2010.
- Online registration for the Master Gardener Course will not be available from midnight Dec. 22, 2010 until 8:00 am January 3, 2011 due to the University closure for cost savings. Customer support and credit card reconciliation will not be available during this extended period of time. Registration will be open again January 3, 2011 at 8:00a.m.
