Furlough day closes most Hillsborough offices Friday

TAMPA — In a cost-saving measure, many county offices will be closed Friday for the third of five furlough days scheduled for this year.

Offices closed include administrative offices, neighborhood service centers, senior centers and nutrition sites.

All clerk of circuit courts offices, both downtown and regional, will be closed.

County libraries will be closed Friday and Sunday, but will have a normal schedule Saturday.

Recreation centers and the Head Start program will be closed Friday, but parks will remain open throughout the weekend.

Tax collector offices will be open Friday. Property appraiser offices, except the downtown and Brandon locations, will be open as well.

Emergency services, wastewater plants, solid-waste collection and some children's services will not be affected by the furlough.

The Sunshine Line, which provides transportation of dialysis patients to dialysis centers, and the animal shelter also will remain open Friday.

Furlough days are estimated to save the county $700,000 for each day. The last two furlough days of the fiscal year are June 18 and Sept. 9.

  5. Senate GOP set to release health-care bill (w/video)

    National

    WASHINGTON -— Senate Republicans on Thursday plan to release a health-care bill that would curtail federal Medicaid funding, repeal taxes on the wealthy and eliminate funding for Planned Parenthood as part of an effort to fulfill a years-long promise to undo Barack Obama's signature health-care law.
