The chairman of the Worth County Commission brought up an idea to cut costs in Wednesday night's meeting.

Chairman Mike Cosby suggested a four-day work week for all county employees.

Although the chairman brought the issue up, commissioners say it wouldn't be legal.

Commissioner Bettye Bozeman says the county courthouse must be open for at least 40 hours a week.

The four-day work week was just a suggestion. Mike Cosby says he's open to other ideas to save on funds.

Three public hearings will be held at the end of the month for residents to state their opinion about the proposed budget.

Two meetings will be held on July 25, 2013. One is set for 9:00 a.m., while the other is scheduled for 6:00 p.m. that evening.

A final public hearing will be held on July 30, 2013 at 7:00 p.m.
